Looking for some credible sources to create an argumentative paper on the topic below.
Topic: Should today's education be relevant to tomorrow's job market?
My point of view: I think that integrating work experience into a curriculum is an asset to education. Why not give students some substance behind what they have learned? Making new information more relatable to students everyday life can help to make a lesson more engaging.
I am also interested on learning your viewpoint on this topic so please feel free to share. Thank you for your time.

I think you're right, but I also believe that all students must learn to do very well in reading (high-level comprehension), writing, and math/logic. Without these types of knowledge and skills, little else will matter.
I think a variety of vocational courses should be offered -- as many as a school can manage, depending on its size. The smaller the school, of course, the fewer choices there'll end up being.
Be sure you're clear on the levels in Bloom's Taxonomy and where each would fit in with your "prepared for the future" ideas (which are good ideas, by the way).
A book called The Saber-Tooth Curriculum would be another to read -- it's not a large book and can be read in a relatively short time.
