Schooling and Vocational Preparation: Is a Revolution Really Taking Place?
Cornford, Ian R.
Australian Journal of Education, v42 n2 p169-82 Aug 1998
Despite concerted efforts to increase the vocational content of school curricula, a major problem that remains is a class-based, discriminatory educational system that separates the more challenging intellectual and academic from the practical and occupationally focused. A real revolution in schooling and vocational preparation will occur only when the changed nature of work, knowledge, and skills is reflected in school curricula. (Author/MSE)
