Vocationalization of secondary education is taken to mean curriculum change in a practical or vocational direction. Vocationalization is a trend which transcends the divide between rich and poor countries and between different political systems. This volume illustrates the international importance of the theme. Part I deals with the views and expectations relating to the process of vocationalization. Part II is concerned with the process of policy formulation and the conditions impinging on that process. Part III addresses select issues in policy implementation and describes more broadly how vocationalization policies have been implemented throughout the education system of various countries. Finally, Part IV discusses the results of a number of empirical evaluation studies.

...the book should be required reading for anyone involved with vocational policy-making...it offers conceptual refinement, rich descriptions and nice analytic reasoning; moreover, it is truly comparative and therefore of high interest both to academic researchers and professional evaluators...reading of the book is highly recommended.
