Restructuring the education system : agenda for the 1990s by Michael R Cohen( Book )

2 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The widening mismatch between the skills of the work force and the skill demands of the workplace underlie the need for school restructuring. Within the categories of school-level, school-district, and state-level issues, a discussion about and suggestions for restructuring U.S. education in order to improve its productivity and student acquisition of higher order thinking skills comprise the crux of this document. Educational goals, the structure of knowledge, instructional tasks and activities, instructional group size and composition, and instructional time are reviewed and analyzed as school-level issues. School district role, central office functions, the balance between centralized control and local autonomy, present and alternative governance structures, personnel policies and practices, and collective bargaining are analyzed within the rubric of school district issues. A discussion of state-level issues suggests setting educational goals, stimulating local innovation, and rethinking state accountability systems. In response to the educational challenges that schools face, fundamental changes in the way local districts and states operate will determine the way schools are structured, instruction is provided, and staff roles and responsibilities are defined.

The role of science and technology in economic competitiveness : final report by Marianne K Clarke( Book )

6 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the fall of 1986, a joint study was undertaken to solicit views of the nation's Governors, senior officers of U.S. companies, and presidents and deans of U.S. colleges and universities on the relationship of U.S. competitiveness to the human resource base and research and development capacity. Researches polled 2,300 senior research and development officers and 500 university leaders and senior state officials. Approximately 500 replies were received This report summarizes the survey findings and the discussion which occurred at the April 1987 regional meetings based on the survey's preliminary results. Specifically, the study was designed to address such issues as: (1) the importance of research and education to the economic competitiveness of the United States; (2) which of the following factors were believed to have the greatest impact on U.S. competitiveness--human resources, research and development investments, technology transfer, or federal fiscal, monetary, regulatory and trade policy; (3) what changes need to be made to strengthen and improve the nation's research and education system; and (4) the perceptions of three different communities--the business sector, the academic community, and state governments--with regard to research and education policies and the roles of each of these organizations to meet the competitive challenge of today's economy. Survey data and the discussions which occurred at regional meetings showed that there was a great deal of similarity in the perceptions of the three groups compared. The industry, university, and government leaders participating in the study agreed that science and engineering research and education have in the past, and will continue in the future, to play a crucial role in determining U.S. competitiveness. With regard to the most important factor affecting the nation's future competitiveness, all three groups viewed education as the key. Furthermore, there was general agreement that the area of education of greatest concern is mathematics and science education at the k-12 level. The survey instrument, a list of regional meeting speakers and panelists, and the National Governors' Association Issues Paper are included in three appendixes. (Tw)
