Managing the Risks of Work-based Learning: A Resource Guide.
National School-to-Work Opportunities Office, Washington, DC.
This guide examines a process for managing the risks to students, schools, and employers when students go into the workplace. The guide was created for the following purposes: to aid schools and employers to be better informed about the necessity and the means of protecting students from harm; to encourage more employers to provide work-based learning opportunities; and to help school districts devise risk management plans that address work-based learning and service learning. The guide is organized in three sections: (1) "Identifying and Managing Risks to Students"; (2) "Identifying and Managing Risks to School Districts"; and (3) "Identifying and Managing Risks to Employers." The third section includes state profiles of work-based learning risk management strategies. In addition, a resource section contains 31 publications and 13 organizations. (KC)
