RAISING LOW INCOMES THROUGH IMPROVED EDUCATION, A STATEMENT ON NATIONAL POLICY.
Committee for Economic Development, New York, NY. Research and Policy Committee.
THE ENLARGED FEDERAL ROLE IN EDUCATION DOES NOT RELIEVE OTHERS OF THEIR RESPONSIBILITIES. ONE OF THE MAIN PURPOSES OF THIS POLICY STATEMENT IS TO URGE GREATER EFFORTS BY STATES, LOCALITIES, AND PRIVATE BUSINESS TO DISCHARGE THEIR RESPONSIBILITY TO IMPROVE AND EXTEND EDUCATION AND TRAINING WHICH WOULD CONTRIBUTE TO RAISING THE PRODUCTIVITY, AND CONSEQUENTLY THE INCOMES, OF MANY AMERICANS WITH BELOW AVERAGE INCOMES. MORE AND BETTER EARLY EDUCATION, BEGINNING BEFORE KINDERGARTEN, SHOULD BE PROVIDED FOR DISADVANTAGED CHILDREN. STATES AND SCHOOL DISTRICTS SHOULD MODERNIZE VOCATIONAL TRAINING TO BRING IT INTO LINE WITH OCCUPATIONAL REQUIREMENTS. STATES SHOULD ESTABLISH ADEQUATE SYSTEMS OF CONVENIENTLY AVAILABLE EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS BEYOND HIGH SCHOOL. PROGRAMS FOR TRAINING AND RETRAINING ADULTS AND REHABILITATING THE PHYSICALLY HANDICAPPED SHOULD BE EXPANDED. PROGRAMS TO ELIMINATE ADULT ILLITERACY SHOULD BE INITIATED. IN FEDERAL PROGRAMS FOR ASSISTING ECONOMICALLY DISTRESSED REGIONS, MORE EMPHASIS SHOULD BE PLACED ON FINANCES FOR CONSTRUCTING AND EQUIPPING EDUCATIONAL AND REHABILITATION FACILITIES. MORE USE SHOULD BE MADE OF THE CAPACITIES OF BUSINESS FOR TRAINING WORKERS AND DEVELOPING EFFECTIVE EDUCATIONAL METHODS. IT WILL BE NECESSARY TO OPERATE THE EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM MORE EFFICIENTLY, BY BETTER ORGANIZATION OF SCHOOL DISTRICTS, QUICKER APPLICATION OF MODERN TECHNIQUES, AND MORE RESEARCH TO DEVELOP BETTER TECHNIQUES.
