The eleven papers presented at a 1985 conference on school-to-work transition are collected in this volume. The papers focus on school-business partnerships, school programs, and community projects. Their titles (and authors) are: (1) "Investing in Our Children: Business and the Public Schools" (Sol Hurwitz); (2) "From School to Work: Transition or Chasm?" (Gordon Berlin); (3) "Corporate Role in Public Education" (Peter Goldberg); (4) "World of Work: Youth Orientation" (James N. Heston); (5) "Bridges and Partnerships: School-to-Work Transition" (William J. Cirone); (6) "Public/Private Collaboration in School-to-Work Programs" (Peggy Dulany); (7) "School-to-Work Transition: A Solution to the Dropout Problem" (Nathan Quinones and Victor Herbert); (8) "Preparation for Police Work: An Academic Model" (Mary DePiano Rothlein); (9) "School-to-Work Transition: The Hidden Agenda" (R. C. Smith); (10) "School-to-Work: Lessons Learned in Baltimore" (Marion W. Pines); (11) "School-to-Work Programs: Response and Non-Response" (Frank J. Slobig). Opening remarks, by William J. Bennett, and closing remarks, by Edward J. Meade, Jr., are also included. A preface to this collection observes that virtually all of the papers express concern for the effectiveness of school-to-work programs and stress the relevance of basic skills and the inculcation of qualities vital to productive employment.
