Summary

Historically, man's educational system and preparation for a role in society has been based on a concept of stability. Our's is the first generation which must educate and reeducate to new dimensions of time and change. Today a person's role in society is determined almost exclusively by his work role. This concept leads to several conclusions: (1) Vocational education must become a part of all levels of education to assist individuals in the transition from school to work, (2) Educators must help students make this transition, and (3) Schools and colleges must make learning how to work a part of their program. Programs which give all persons the opportunity to serve a useful purpose must be developed. Ways to bridge the gap between man and his work are to establish exploratory occupational programs in junior high schools, a nationwide work-study program, and an entry-job placement system, and to construct residential vocational schools. Man's work must be recognized as his most important product and education must become the link between man and his work. (EM)
