The boundless resource : a prospectus for an education-work policy by Willard Wirtz( Book )

13 editions published between 1975 and 1978 in English and held by 665 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Representing a group effort by the author and the National Manpower Institute, the prospectus focuses on ways to improve the integration of the traditionally separate world of work and education--ways to break up the "time traps" of education for youth, and work for adults. It especially speaks for the 16-19 year old population, working women, workers needing training or retraining, minority group members, and people over 60. Part 1, Youth, discusses the 20 percent youth unemployment rate, the mismatch of competency development and available jobs, and the necessity of "infusing" liberal arts and vocational education. Part 2, The Career Years, explores work in light of improving the quality of life, not merely expanding the Gross National Product, and perceives the imminence of the revolution against the injustices toward older people. Part 3, The Prospect, grapples with the economic and political questions involved in instituting education-work policy. Some features of the proposed change strategy include: establishment of Community Education-Work Councils and a Work Institute, an Occupational Outlook and Career Information reporting system of national/local information, increased career counseling, youth community work/service programs, unemployment insurance law revision, and elimination of age structures on public education.

What shall we do about declining test scores? by Willard Wirtz( Book )

4 editions published in 1978 in English and Undetermined and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two issues, one familiar and the other less so, emerge from the controversy over declining scores on standardized tests in the United States and the growing movement toward minimal competency testing mandated by government. The familiar issue involves the balance between egalitarianism and elitism in American education. The second, a reemerging issue, is that of pluralism in American education. The minimal competency legislation being adopted in many areas prompts questions of accountability, especially mutual accountability of schools, parents, teachers, and students. A four-point agenda is suggested for expanding the minimal competency testing function: (1) deciding what competencies the community wants to measure; (2) finding a balance in types of tests and determining result reporting measures; (3) insistence upon standards of excellence that encourage performance at the upper level of the scale and deemphasize poor performance at the lower end; and (4) full consideration of what will happen to students who don't meet minimum standards. The questions of curriculum and basic skills development are closely linked to the minimum competency issue, and they have no irreconcilable differences. Despite the difficulty and inconvenience of implementing real change in the area of basic skills, it would be worthwhile for groups of teachers, school administrators, school board members, and parents to get together to align with the common purpose of doing more about the basics. In broad terms, the tests themselves are not very important; however, the increased interest in them does present new problems and opens new prospects for the development of pluralism in American education.

Measuring the quality of education : a report on assessing educational progress by Willard Wirtz( Book )

4 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since 1969 National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) reports on the scholastic achievements of the nation's elementary and secondary level students have been appearing frequently. The reactions to these reports are a perplexing mix of acclaim and criticism, of expressed respect but apparently slight regard. This study assesses NAEP and considers the anomaly of the gap between its reputed quality among experts and relatively slight public notice and influence. The analysis of NAEP and the report's recommendations have been put in the context of the concept of definable and measureable, and also "higher," educational standards. The study reflects, too, the growing realization throughout not only the educational profession but the country at large that these standards must be used carefully. The controlling questions that guided the study were whether the essential features of NAEP have importance in the development of higher educational standards and how, if they do, traditional NAEP practices should be re-shaped to serve these purposes. Consideration of specific issues customarily raised about NAEP'S design, program and procedures is deferred until the issue of its sufficient reason for being, in a standards oriented system, is faced and answered.

Tuition-Aid Revisited Tapping the Untapped Resource. Worker Education and Training Policies Project by Willard Wirtz( Book )

4 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph presents a summary and analysis of case study reports on three highly used tuition assistance programs. The programs are those of the Education Fund of District Council 37 of AFSCME; Polaroid Corporation's Tuition Assistance Plan; and the Education Opportunities Plan of Kimberly-Clark Corporation. The case studies describe the historical background and design of the programs, how they function and are accessed, how well they meet the purposes of users and sponsors, and what factors seem to account for worker use rates well above the national norms of 4-5 percent of those eligible. Discussed are the main features of these three highly diverse tuition assistance programs; the elements common to all three programs and their operating environments, as well as salient differences; requirements for and limits to the broader implementation of the promising practices and support arrangements contained in these programs; and an informed assessment of what the experience of these programs tell about the role tuition aid can play in meeting education and training needs of workers and employers.
