This document contains nine papers exploring the school-to-work transition and the role of career education in smoothing that transition.

Drier). Two papers in the second section review general approaches to the transition: "Youth Apprenticeship" (Peter Joyce, Sandra Byrne); and "Career Academies" (Valerie Harris). The final section provides some program examples: "Elementary and Middle School Career Education" (Linda Gadd); "High School Career Education Program" (Pamela Collier); "Career Resource Centers" (Sara Walkenshaw and Jim Crain); and "Career Guidance" (Rebecca Dedmond). An annotated resource section lists 39 resources on school-to-work transitions, and the final section of the document contains 36 references. (KC)
