A Study for Texas: Education, Employment and the Economy.
Thomas, Wayne E.
In this speech, the author proposes a comprehensive study of professional, industrial, and business employment needs, and of the relationship of these needs to educational programs and services in the state of Texas. The proposal for action addresses statewide concern for the current lack of correlation between educational programs and career opportunities and between market demand for and supply of college graduates. Heretofore, such concern has brought examination by sectors within the context of particular areas, e.g., business leaders approaching it as a business matter, educators approaching it as an educational matter, and industry approaching it as a manpower matter. It is hoped that the talents and resources of state and Federal Government, education, private industry, private foundations, professional organizations, and of all who are touched by the problem can be combined to find and implement solutions to the problem.
