Educational Activities within Business-Industry: Implications for Public Education.
Lynn, David R.; Nothom, John W.
A study was made on the island of Oahu, Hawaii, of types and levels of training being conducted by business-industry; extent of business-industry inplant programs; costs of training programs; and opinions as to expectations for public education. Personal interviews were conducted in 23 large (more than 250 employees) organizations, and information was obtained from a larger sampling of "small employers" by mail questionnaire. The results of the two sample groups were generally consistent. The small employer group reported that expansion of vocational education at the high-school level as well as at the post-high-school level was significantly important as a means of helping business-industry with training. The larger employer placed greater emphasis on expansion at the post-high-school level and the part-time evening programs. It is apparent that manpower development must be a cooperative undertaking involving business-industry, public education, and related government agencies; however, an apparent gulf between business-industry and public education has not been bridged. Technological developments appear to occur in business-industry more rapidly than governmental agencies are able to develop needed programs. (PT)
