Kansas Training and Retraining Plan. Revised.
Kansas State Board of Education, Topeka.
This document outlines the Kansas plan for making every state citizen a learner and a worker by the year 2000. The goal of the plan is to take new approaches to education and human resources management that emphasize learning, flexibility, and productive participation in work and society throughout life. The plan lists the skills that will be required of the work force and suggests potential strategies to inculcate each skill in present and future workers. The plan requires that the various segments of the educational community work toward improving the educational process in the following areas: integration of learning and working; high skills and high wages jobs; information required for guidance, training, and placement; individualization of services and programs; articulation of programs and schools; funding sources and processes; accountability for results and use of financial resources; future and current workers; and leadership. (An appendix lists competencies and skills identified by the Secretary's Commission on Achieving Necessary Skills.) (KC)
