Editorial Reviews


Nancy Hoffman offers a clear-eyed analysis of the American youth development problem and what we can learn from our European competitors, their successes and their failures. She suggests workable solutions in moving from a 'completion' agenda to a learning for jobs agenda. This is a necessary read for those who are serious about addressing the real education needs of American youth in their transition to a productive adulthood. --James R. Stone III, professor and director, National Research Center for Career & Technical Education, University of Louisville
