POSSIBLE EFFECTS OF SELECTED EDUCATIONAL POLICIES AND PROGRAMS ON INCOME SIZE AND DISTRIBUTION IN THE INDUSTRIAL SECTOR OF PERU, PHASE 4--EDUCATION AS AN INSTRUMENT OF NATIONAL POLICY IN SELECTED NEWLY DEVELOPING NATIONS.
HANNA, PAUL R.; WHITE, HARRY R.
THE ROLE OF EDUCATION WAS EXPLORED WITH RESPECT TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF PERU. SPECIFICALLY, THE PROBLEM WAS TO IDENTIFY EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS AND POLICIES THAT APPEAR TO BE INSTRUCTIONAL IN ACHIEVING PERUVIAN NATIONAL GOALS. THE ASSUMPTION OF THE STUDY WAS THAT, ALTHOUGH EDUCATION MAY BE A PREREQUISITE FOR ENTRANCE IN AN OCCUPATION, IT IS THE EMPLOYMENT, NOT THE EDUCATION, WHICH GIVES THE INDIVIDUAL HIS INCOME, GROUP DATA WERE GATHERED BY USE OF A QUESTIONNAIRE INTERVIEW WITH A SELECTED SAMPLE OF THE LARGEST EMPLOYERS, TECHNICAL SCHOOL DIRECTORS, AND EDUCATIONAL EXPERTS. IT WAS FOUND THAT ONLY A SMALL PERCENTAGE OF STUDENTS WHO STUDY INDUSTRIAL SUBJECTS ACTUALLY FIND JOBS IN INDUSTRY (10 TO 40 PERCENT, DEPENDING ON THE LEVEL AND TYPE OF EDUCATION). IN ORDER OF IMPORTANCE, THE REASONS DETERMINED WERE ESSENTIALLY THAT (1) THERE ARE NOT ENOUGH POSITIONS AVAILABLE IN EXISTING INDUSTRIAL FIRMS, (2) THE LEVELS AND TYPES OF TRAINING OFFERED BY MOST INSTITUTIONS ARE INAPPROPRIATE FOR EMPLOYMENT, (3) THE ATTITUDES OF BOTH EDUCATORS AND STUDENTS, IN GENERAL, WERE EITHER AMBIVALENT OR UNFAVORABLE TOWARD INDUSTRIAL EMPLOYMENT. RECOMMENDATIONS WERE OFFERED TO RESOLVE THESE PROBLEMS. (HB)
