This book argues that the collaboration of teachers in vocational-technical fields with teachers of academic subjects can result in more meaningful general education. Boredom and poor academic performance can be reduced, while future citizens are more realistically schooled. The book offers illustrations of how both academic subject matter in vocational-technical and academic instruction can profit from developments in the other field. The key to this mutual profit is a collaborative interaction of teachers in the two areas.
