Washington: The State and Its Educational System.
Hodgkinson, Harold L.
A profile of Washington is presented, which examines trends in the state's economy, environment, population, and educational system. A contradiction exists between the state's beautiful scenery and well-educated population and its high crime and suicide rates. The state is characterized by a highly educated work force, a less diversified economy, increasing minority populations, and regional diversity. Recommendations are made to continue to decrease economic dependence upon the Boeing industry, coordinate public school and higher educational systems, focus on transnational issues and teaching in education, and to implement dropout intervention programs.
