The Unbearable Lightness of Skill: The Changing Meaning of Skill in UK Policy Discourses and Some Implications for Education and Training.
Payne, Jonathan
Journal of Education Policy, v15 n3 p353-69 May-Jun 2000
Traces how the meaning of "skill" has broadened considerably since the 1950s by examining relevant policy literature and the central, "re-defining" role of the (British) Manpower Services Commission and Further Education Unity in the 1970s and 1980s. Recent usage seems compatible with a low-skill economy. (Contains 71 references.) (MLH)
