Outreach Project
The School-to-Work Outreach Project (STWOP) was a nationwide, three year project funded by the U.S. Department of Education to improve school-to-work activities including students with disabilities by identifying and sharing school-to-work models/practices/strategies that work, encouraging others to adopt or replicate those models. Although the STWOP completed the identification process in the Fall of 1997, we are continuting to post the profiles of exemplary models/practices/strategies, in addition to other products developed by this project. We hope that you will find this information useful as you implement school-to-work systems in your area. Table of Contents: For further information, contact:

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.

School to Work Transition

School-to-work programs provide ways for students to transition successfully into the economy, either through paid employment with a business or self-employment. Numerous studies reveal that, upon high school graduation, many students who aren't college-bound are neither prepared for nor connected to employment opportunities. Basic Elements
In general, building a school-to-work transition program entails the following three approaches:
  • Integrate the long-separated "tracks" of academic and vocational education. 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 Vocational education is considered too narrow and specific, outdated by modern technology, and ineffective in building language and math skills.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.

    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:

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.

    Students must have a visual impairment in both eyes and require vocational rehabilitation services to prepare for an employment outcome.
    Transition Services consist of a group of services provided jointly by the local school district on an Individual Education Plan and Blind Services. Types of services can consist of the following:
    • Career Exploration Compensatory Skills Training Training in Activities of Daily Living Job Shadowing Work Experiences
    Transition Services are generally provided through the Vocational Rehabilitation. However, they could be provided through the Children and Families Program.

    The purpose of the Forum's site visit to Louisville, Kentucky was to provide participants from Congressional offices, federal departments and agencies, and national organizations with a first-hand view of state, city and neighborhood initiatives to improve the education and life options of young people. [Unfortunately, due to the federal shutdown, our federal participants were unable to join us.]
    A Spirit of Collaboration
    A common question asked by the field trip participants was how dependent the success in Louisville is on the individuals involved and the fact that everyone seems to know each other. Institutionalization, to a point , is one of the local goals to help avoid losing momentum if people are lost. Dr. Stephen Daeschener, Superintendent of the Jefferson County Public Schools , said, however, that being a newcomer did not prevent him from participating in the collaboration that preceded him.
