Abstract

Like many other developing countries, students in Iran are leaving secondary school while what they have learnt is different from what the world of work and the labour market requires. This is because the Iranian schooling system is not paying attention properly to what young people, as the future employees, need and how the system can increase their career abilities to participate in the world of work. Problematic circumstances of the young people from the employment point of view have led policy makers and educators in many societies to reform educational systems toward making education more relevant to the needs of the economy. However, no systematic research has been carried out in Iran to investigate such problems which hinder secondary education from achieving its objectives. This research was an attempt to provide a foundation for addressing these problems, from which policy indicators or further studies might be considered.
