Proceedings of a Conference on the Role of Education in the Re-Industrialization of the United States (San Francisco, California, March 30, 1980).
Sniegoski, Stephen J., Ed.
These proceedings of a conference on the role of education in the reindustrialization of the United States consist of the conference introductory remarks, the texts of five conference presentations, reactor comments and concluding remarks, an executive summary, and a list of conference participants. The first conference report describes the South Carolina Technical Education System, which focuses on improving industrial training by developing special programs, employee-upgrading courses, and occupational programs. The need for greater cooperation between education and the world of work through improved linkages between employers and employee trainers is the subject of the second presentation. Discussed next is the importance of the small business to the American economy. Effective human resource development and management as a path for increasing employment opportunities for minorities, youth, women, and the handicapped is the key issue examined in a presentation on industry-education cooperation as affirmative action in economic development. The final presentation deals with quality control in industry and the training function in industry and the public schools. (MN)
