In its fiscal year 1994 budget, the Clinton administration asked for $270 million to initiate a national system for school-to-work transition. The money is only a fraction of the funds already available for transition programs under the federal Vocational Education Program and the Job Training Partnership Act. In August the administration submitted a more comprehensive legislative proposal aimed at high school students who don't intend to go onto college. The legislation would provide grants for states to establish school-to-work systems and additional help for states and localities that steady have such programs. The price tag for fiscal year 1995, $300 million. Students who finish the program would receive a high school diploma and an occupational skill certificate.
