For over a decade, the education and employment systems of western industrialized countries have had to adapt to the changes brought about by the post-industrial age. The recession of the early 1990s has increasingly led education and business communities to look for ways to cooperate in preparing young people both in and entering the job market for a new social and economic order. "Enterprise Learning in Action" draws on case studies in community and enterprise learning from around the world in order to show how young people can be taught the enterprise skills which will enable them to survive in an uncertain world. Author Dale E. Shuttleworth looks in particular at how this can be done outside the formal school system and within the community in ways which are responsive to the particular needs of each locality. His message is one of great optimism for a future in which those who are at present rejected by the system can become active and valued contributors.
