American Higher Education in Transition.
Jaffe, A. J.; Adams, Walter
In this report the authors have presented an overview of the most significant findings principally concerned with long- and short-term higher educational trends and developments, and their implications for the years ahead. A major portion of the data consisted of long-term historical analyses of educational attainment in the United States, principally from Census sources, and of the historical evolution of higher educational institutions. Shorter term analyses from the late thirties to the near present, derived from a number of independent surveys, plus OE statistics and Census Bureau Current Population Surveys, permitted the relation of student and college characteristics to college plans and enrollments. Considered as a totality, long- and short-term trends plus the current higher educational realities form the base for future predictions. These materials also specify the significant educational "problem areas" which are emerging, and which may be presumed to mount to relative significance as time passes. The authors will devote a considerable part of this summary to identifying these "problems." (Author)
