This monograph presents the views of four scholars concerning the relationship between education and work. In a paper entitled "Research and Evaluation Issues in Vocational Education," John T. Grasso focuses on the responsibility of vocational education to youth. The second paper, "Occupational Training: For Employers, for Trainers, or for Workers?" by Marcia Freedman, addresses the issues of labor market segmentation, education and training requirements for occupations, and problems and prospects in youth employment. Next, in a paper entitled "Coming Changes in Learning, Leisure, and Literacy," Robert F. Bundy discusses the future of vocational education and its relationship to liberal arts education. The final paper, "The Politics of Implementing Education and Work Programs" by Marion W. Pines, examines the politics of implementing Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) programs in light of the present climate of Federal conservatism. (MN)
