Giving High Schools an Occupational Focus.
Grubb, W. Norton
Educational Leadership, v49 n6 p36-37,40-41,43 Mar 1992
High school is an inescapably vocational institution whose occupational focus is largely hidden. Integration of vocational and academic education through academies, occupationally focused schools, and occupational clusters may eliminate "shopping mall" course selections, improve teaching of all subjects, enhance student engagement with learning, reduce teacher isolation and student tracking, preserve student options, and improve guidance and counseling.
