Editorial Reviews

"The authors, all respected figures in the school-to-work field, bring a committed but critical perspective to their search for a workable educational reform that can straddle America's ever-waning investment in traditional vocational education and the realization that not all high school students are bound for four-year institutions...."Working Knowledge is a sophisticated and balanced treatment of the preparation of youth for the workplace.
