Description

Based on a comparative analysis of the education and work experiences transition to post-communism, the authors argue that, far from catching up with the rest of Germany, the social polarizations and erosion of the traditional "dual system" of vocational education and training in Eastern Germany may portend the future for the West. The issues raised have considerable resonances with the problems and contradictions which have beset British education and training and labour market policy in the 1990s.
