Automation, Manpower, and Education.
Rosenberg, Jerry M.
Each group in our population will be affected by automation and other forms of technological advancement. This book seeks to identify the needs of these various groups, and to present ways in which educators can best meet them. The author corrects certain prevalent misconceptions concerning manpower utilization and automation. Based on the information now available, he predicts future opportunities in various job classifications. On the basis of surveys made of members of several labor unions, the author suggests insights into the socio-psychological aspects of technological innovation. He reports on his own efforts to develop a course in automation. Government and labor activities in the field of training and education are reviewed. Certain aspects of automation are especially relevant to the field of education. These aspects, along with some broader issues which affect the nation as a whole, are discussed. A bibliography is provided. (JY)
