The Evolution toward Lifelong Learning as a Critical Transition Outcome for the 21st Century
deFur, Sharon H.; Korinek, Lori
Exceptionality, v16 n4 p178-191 Oct 2008
Forces including legislation, policy, standards-based educational reforms, and changing economic and social conditions have dramatically altered the conversation and practices around postsecondary transition. This article traces the development of postsecondary transition as it is reflected in the professional literature and federal legislation since 1975. Over time, increasing expectations, access, and outcomes for students with disabilities are moving the goals for transition toward postsecondary education and lifelong learning to help graduates achieve continuing success in employment and adult life. (Contains 1 table.)
