Voices of Diversity in Programs Linking Education and Work
V. M. Hernandez-Gantes
What do students think about the new programs that link education and work? What kind of learning do they get in these programs? How does gender influence their perspectives? What happens to them when they graduate? This series of briefs highlights findings derived from a national study of students enrolled in programs structured by current education reform ideas. Of particular interest were the perspectives of students who are traditionally underrepresented, e.g., female, Latino, and Asian. Practitioners, educators, policymakers, and researchers will gain a better understanding of students' high school and two-year college experiences from these briefs.
