Reflections on Theories of Human Capital, Skills Training and Vocational Education.
Violas, Paul Constantine
Educational Theory, v31 n2 p137-51 Spr 1981

Possessing vocational skills does not guarantee employment in the related field; consequently, education should emphasize the teaching of basic intellectual skills. (PP)
