Combining School and Work: Options in High Schools and Two-Year Colleges.
Stem, David
This report examines a variety of options that are being implemented in schools and in school-business partnerships to train workers for the increasingly technical and changing jobs of the future. The report contains eight sections that cover the following topics: (1) joining supply-side and demand-side policy at the local level (educational planning to provide workers for jobs and jobs for workers); (2) apprenticeship (the German system, the U.S. system, and possibilities for expanding apprenticeship); (3) cooperative education--CO-OP (federal support, prevalence of CO-OP, effects on employment, and expanding CO-OP); (4) school-based enterprise--SBE (studies of SBEs in the United States, an exemplary program of SBE, and possibilities for expanding SBE); (5) vocational academies (historical perspective, evaluations, and possibilities for expansion); (6) tech-prep and 2 + 2 programs linking high schools with two-year colleges (examples of tech-prep programs and ways of expanding them); (7) school-business partnerships and ways of expanding them; and (8) improving the options for students.
