Education and the World of Work. Studies and Surveys in Comparative Education.
This book traces, through the diversity of periods and differing cultural, political, and economic backgrounds, the interaction between education and productive work. Part One discusses the various conceptions of work and work crises and makes a few attempts to shed some light on the socioeconomic factors determining them. Part Two presents an historical account of the institutional context of the relations between work and education. It points out the links that have always existed between the world of production, as connected with work, and that of reproduction, as associated with education. Part Three discusses various approaches to the interactions between work and education and describes an economic and logical approach to work and education. Strategies are proposed that place education and productive work in a systemic perspective and lead to a new "vocationalism" of the population. Part Four makes observations about the relations between initial education and productive work, organized around the personal and social development of youth or young people. Part Five considers the relations that workers can maintain with education during their productive life. A conclusion reports some prospects concerning developing countries. A conference paper on the interaction between education and work and three related excerpts are appended. (YLB)
