The Higher Education and Employment Markets in France
The relationships between the educational system and the system of production are neither simple nor linear as might have been presumed in a quite recent period. The term adequacy which is often crucial in education-employment analysis has lost its magical power and the intended goal of establishing a one-to-one correlation between training and jobs, by placing the population on the diagonal of the training-employment matrix, has lost current relevance. At the same time, the more flexible idea that minimal qualifications should exist for holding jobs seems only to apply in a limited way to a relatively small portion of the jobs offered by the system of production. The notion of qualification with its corollary disqualification is, in turn, a vague and non-normative concept, as it is both dated and specified in space as well as time.
