School-to-Work: Bad for Business.
Petteway, Roxanne C.
Crisis in Education, p37-38 Feb 1998
Discusses the potential impact of the School-to-Work program, which would involve a series of national assessments administered in fourth, eighth, and eleventh grade to determine students' career majors (based on predicted labor-market needs of the local workforce development area). This equals loss of parental and local control. The new economy would have little room for small business. (SM)
