The enduring effects of education by Herbert Hiram Hyman( Book )

11 editions published between 1975 and 1976 in English and held by 768 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The results of the first long-term, wide-scale secondary analysis of survey data concerning the enduring effects of schooling are presented in this work. The findings are detailed in four chapters covering the enduring effects of schooling on knowledge; the influence of other variables; the role of continuing learning, specifically through mass media exposure and personal information seeking; and the relative effectiveness of secondary and higher education. The conclusion discusses the need for further studies of enduring effects through secondary and semisecondary analysis. Appendixes contain basic tables, tables containing detailed findings on knowledge, surveys and questions used, and tables on the effects of education when other variables are controlled. (Fl)
Education's lasting influence on values by Herbert Hiram Hyman( Book )

9 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 567 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book examines the long-term effects of education on the values of adult Americans. To measure education's lasting effects the authors did a "secondary analysis" of national attitude surveys that had been conducted in four time periods from 1950 to 1975. Thirty-eight surveys that included 45,000 white adults from 25 to 72 years of age were evaluated. The data shows that education produces large and lasting good effects in the realm of values. The following values are more prevalent among adults who have gone to high school than among those who have not gone beyond elementary school: civil liberties for both the orthodox and the nonconformists; due process of law; freedom from the constraints of arbitrary laws in personal and social relations; freedom for the flow of not only innocuous but also controversial information; equality in the social, economic, and political spheres; humanitarianism or measures to reduce pain, injury, suffering or deprivation; and placing a higher valuation on morals or good conduct toward others than on manners. This profile of values is most prevalent among those who have gone to college. The book also comments on parallels between this study and an earlier study conducted by the authors entitled "The Enduring Effects of Education" which presents strong evidence showing that retention of knowledge and the continued propensity to seek new knowledge are directly related to the number of years spent in school.
