Education and Training for Work: The Policy Instruments and the Institutions

L. M. McDonnell, W. N. Grubb

This report was prepared as part of a continuing effort by NCRVE to understand the larger institutional and policy context in which vocational education operates. It provides an overview of five major categories of education and training policies, within a framework based on the policy instruments federal and state officials use in designing programs to prepare individuals for employment. This study should be of particular interest to those in the federal, state, and local policy communities who are concerned with education and training issues, and those who manage an increasingly complex array of programs designed for different clients and operating in a variety of local labor markets.
