Work, Education, and Voluntarism in the 21st Century.
Educational Researcher, v25 n5 p33-37 Jun-Jul 1996
Jeremy Rifkin argues that machines are mainly responsible for growing unemployment and should be countered by having people do volunteer work. Providing educational services is among the types of work he suggests volunteers should undertake. Education should also prepare people for volunteer work in this proposed "third sector" of employment. (SLD)
