125 p. 

The transition from schooling to work has been recognized as a difficult one. As society has become more modernized, the problem of transition has become even more aggravated. American postsecondary education has a role to play in making this transition less difficult, and in integrating the educational process into the world of work. This sourcebook focuses on the problems associated with transition and suggests some possible facilitating steps that educational institutions, particularly community colleges, might take. The articles presented deal with the issues associated with school-to-work transition: alienation of young people, the need for affective career education, work experiences for youth, cooperative education, placement services and career development, international examples of school-to-work transition, and factors influencing the growth and decline of higher education. A review of additional pertinent literature and a bibliography are provided. Contributors include: Harry F. Silberman, Edward Wynne, Evan R. Keislar, Robert Meeker, Jane S. Permaul, Mark B. Ginsburg, James C. Taylor, Charles C. Healy, Paul E. Barton, David O'Shea, John N. Hawkins, Thomas J. LaBelle, Brooks Carder, Janet Lieberman, Marcia Freedman, Robert S. Bolan, Stephen J. Carroll, Peter A. Morrison, and Lewis C. Solmon. (JDS)
