School-to-Work Is "In"
Watkins, J. Foster
Online Submission, The Times p2 Sep 20 1994
The position is taken in the article that the "School-to-Work" initiative not be too narrowly defined to vocational/technical institutions to the exclusion of two-year/community colleges. Examples of early efforts to initiate the program are cited that seem to indicate that such could be the case. The author cites the range of students being served successfully by his institutions and describes several academic initiatives with direct career implications that are operational individually and in cooperation with area technical institutions.
