From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation search This article is missing citations or needs footnotes . Please help add inline citations (February 2008) School-to-work transition is a phrase referring to on-the-job training apprenticeships cooperative education agreements or other programs designed to prepare students to enter the job market.

It is composed of more than fifty Cochise County public and private schools, kindergarten through four-year university level, local and community-based organizations, and more than one hundred supporting business partners.

Critical Issue:
Improving School-to-Work Transition for All Students
ISSUE: Too many students leave high school without the occupational and academic skills to succeed in the workplace or in postsecondary education. School-to-work transition initiatives offer a promising approach to this issue and require major school restructuring. OVERVIEW: A report by the Commission on the Skills of the American Workforce, America's Choice: High Skills or Low Wages! (1990), states that "America may have the worst school-to-work transition system of any advanced industrial country." (p. 4) The curriculum of the typical American high school is geared toward preparing students for four-year colleges and universities.
Lynn Peters, director of Business-Education Partnerships for the Fox Cities Chamber of Commerce and Industry, discusses how high schools in Wisconsin often direct most of their efforts toward the 25 percent of kids who graduate from college.

President Clinton signed the School-to-Work Opportunities Act on May 4, 1994. The Act authorized $300 million for fiscal year 1995 and "such sums as may be necessary for each of the fiscal years 1996 through 1999." In 1994, eight states were awarded five-year implementation grants: Kentucky, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, and Wisconsin. All states received funds to plan and develop their programs in late 1993 and early 1994. In addition, 15 local partnerships were funded. The following is a synopsis of the Act that quotes liberally from the Act itself. The administrative rules and regulations were not available at the time of publication. Readers are cautioned to consult the final rules and regulations when they do become available. The rationale for the law included the finding by Congress (Sec. 2) "The United States lacks a comprehensive and coherent system to helps its youth . . . make an effective transition from school to career-oriented work or to further education and training." While many students have "part-time jobs, there is infrequent linkage" between these jobs and school-based learning or career planning for students. Work-based learning, "which is modeled after the time-honored apprenticeship concept, integrates theoretical instruction with structured on-the-job training, and this approach, combined with school-based learning, can be very effective in engaging student interest, enhancing skill acquisition, developing positive work attitudes, and preparing youths for high-skill, high-wage careers." Students "in the United States can achieve high academic and occupational standards, and many learn better and retain more when the students

Rosanna Ward written in a paper on STW at Oral Roberts University This report is a MUST READ for everyone concerned with school-to-work. The report describes the introduction of school-to-work in our nation, and focuses on how it is impacting classrooms, both in Texas and in other states. The document is heavily foot-noted, making it easy for readers to locate the original sources. The report was prepared by the Texas Public Policy Foundation , a nonpprofit, nonpartisan research organization based in San Antonio. It was distributed February 3, 1998, at a Heritage Foundation panel discussion on school-to-work. The panelists included Lynne Cheney, Jennifer Marshall, and Chris Patterson. Several grassroots people attended this discussion, and were kind enough to send TECA a copy, which I have reprinted here. If the TPPF publishes this document on their web page, I will remove it from this site and substitute a direct link. J. Donovan, Coordinator

The general trainee tests apply to School-to-Work learning programs under the School-to-Work Opportunities Act of 1994 (STW). A learning experience at an employer's work site that includes all of the following elements is consistent with a learning experience under the STW:
  • a planned program of job training and work experience for the student, appropriate to the student's abilities, which includes training related to pre-employment and employment skills to be mastered at progressively higher levels that are coordinated with learning in the school-based learning component and lead to the awarding of a skill certificate;
    the learning experience encompasses a sequence of activities that build upon one another, that increase in complexity and promote mastery of basic skills;
    the learning experience has been structured to expose the student to all aspects of an industry and promotes the development of broad, transferable skills; and

    School To Work Transition
    Definition Basic Elements In general, building a school-to-work transition program entails the following three approaches:
  • From middle school on, schools should orient youth to work, help them explore different types of jobs, provide guidance about career paths, and assist them in finding work relevant to their needs and interests. Vocational education is considered too narrow and specific, outdated by modern technology, and ineffective in building language and math skills. Academic education is criticized for being too conventional, driven predominantly by standardized tests, and ineffective at motivating most students. Link schooling with the demands and realities of the workplace. Through employment-related experiences and on-the-job learning, students can receive significant exposure to the workforce and can prepare for their future work environment. Develop programs to closely coordinate secondary and post-secondary education with employers.

    School to Work:
    Prepared for the Orange County School Board Hearing Presented by Karen L. Holgate Parents National Network February 11, 1997 Who could oppose something called School-to-Work (STW)? It sounds great! It's a brilliant title - a brilliant marketing tool. The problem is not the title - the problem is the program! The question is: "What is the program?" and "Does it work?" The answer is: "Who knows." There has been no long term pilot program conducted to study whether it will accomplish its title. When you hear the enormity of its scope, you will understand that its implementation will bring disaster - not just to our children but to this country as a whole. STW calls for total restructuring and a new "governance" of unparalleled proportions and it is thundering ahead with full force. Why hasn't a long term pilot program been established to determine whether such reforms and programs are even feasible? Why haven't we learned from past mistakes? A good example of a government implemented program - because it "sounded good" is the Job Training Partnership Act. The JTPA is often cited in legislation for STW and yet, last year, the Government Accounting Office issued a report on the effects of JTPA. Called " Long-Term Earnings and Employment Outcomes ", the report says:
