Critical Closer Connections between Schooling and the World of Work
in favour of the Student
As recounted from practice, students:
• gain access to more relevant data and information,
• experience how knowledge is applied,
• learn to sense the relevance of skills and competences in a practical context and gain understanding of the value(s) of work and cooperation,
• gradually gain access to and understanding of society’s value- and income-generating capacity, of the world of consumption and production that for a major part defines our (un-)sustainable development. Therewith they are seen to generate a foundation for the design and development of own concepts and ideas, envision how they would choose, rule, regulate, produce, trade and handle goods and services.
