This volume documents a sixteen-year longitudinal study of two elementary schools in which Spanish and Japanese foreign language programs were implemented and evaluated. Evaluation of the programs involved documenting children’s language development, assessing the attitudes of various constituents, and examining critical issues related to the introduction and successful operation of a well articulated sequential foreign language program in schools. The volume concludes with a discussion of possible reasons why over time certain sequential foreign language programs flourish and grow while other programs are reduced or eliminated from the school’s curriculum. Parallels with the theory and practice of environmental sustainable development are used as a framework for this analysis.

This document, which is addressed to employers and others wishing to foster school-to-career programs, reflects the views of the Committee for Economic Development regarding employers' role in linking school and work. The following topics are among those discussed in chapters 1-3: youth and careers (present versus past labor markets, causes of trouble finding jobs, changing skill requirements, challenges for schools and society, costs of the skills gap); learning for the new economy (importance of raising academic achievement; school-to-career as a strategy for motivation and instruction; evidence regarding the effectiveness of programs linking school and work; importance of moving to scale); and employer roles in improving learning (promoting academic achievement through high standards and supportive company practices; advocating school-to-career reforms; providing work experience for students and teachers; facilitating employer participation through intermediaries). Chapter 4 discusses actions that schools and the government can take and makes the following recommendations to employers: support high academic achievement through policy and company practice; join and support intermediary organizations that link employers and schools; and participate in programs that use work experience to promote academic learning and career exploration. Appended are the addresses of 20 school-to-career resource organizations and contains 127 endnotes. (MN)
