This report presents the views expressed at the Labor/Higher Education Council's National Meeting, the theme of which was "Education and Work: Redefinitions and New Strategies." Section 1 includes two keynote speeches: "Priorities for Economic Investment in People, Technology, and Public Works" (Ira Magaziner) and "Organized Labor's Stake in the Work-Learning Connection" (Thomas Donahue). Three presentations in section 2 focus on national education policy: "Introduction: Setting the Context" (Roscoe Brown, Jr.); "National Education Policy: Ready for Change?" (Al Shanker); and "Higher Education and Education Policy: A Response" (Hoke Smith). Section 3 explores work force retraining and government's role in that retraining in these three papers: "Introduction: The UAW (United Auto Workers) Experience with Retraining" (Owen Bieber); "Retraining: Our Means for Economic Survival" (David Gordon); and "Kenosha's Chrysler Plant: A Case Study in Higher Education Retraining" (Sheila Kaplan). Three papers in section 4 examine the future of work and national policy and emphasize changing perceptions of work: "Introduction: Are We Ready for the Work Force/Work Place Changes Ahead?" (James Appleberry); "Hong Kong and Singapore: How Much Economic Planning in This New World of Work?" (David Warsh); and "Changes in the Work Place: Our Response Is Our Future" (Jack Golodner). Section 5 discusses government's role in creating jobs and economic growth in three papers: "Introduction: Individual and Government Action" (William Lucy); "Government as a Positive Force in Job Creation" (Jeff Faux); and "The Swedish Government's Proactive Stance in Job Creation" (Alf Karlsson).
