In clear and straightforward language, the authors dispel the myth that work based learning is restricted to leading students down rigid vocational paths. They present inspiring examples of successful schools from such organizations as the Coalition of Essential Schools, Jobs for the Future, and New Urban High Schools to show how work based learning can become a schoolwide effort - and not simply a specialized program. Throughout the book, there are examples offering important lessons and tools to administrators, teachers, policymakers, and community leaders. Schooling for the Real World heralds a future in which the knowledge worker is not the exception but the rule.
