This volume originated in the second joint U.S.-EU conference, held in November 1994. This international conference was constructed around three central issues: (1) inclusivity: the legal and political struggle for equality; (2) local leadership and the innovative workforce; and (3) the involvement of small- and medium-sized employers in school-to-work programs. More than a transcription of conference proceedings, New Visions includes significant revisions and expansions of presenters' ideas. Topics include European and American perspectives on student diversity, local training partnerships, building school-to-work systems, the German dual system, and more. Anyone interested in international perspectives on linking education and work will find this report valuable.
