A Forecast of Changes in Postsecondary Education.
Huckfeldt, Vaughn E.
This paper presents the principal findings of a study of possible changes in postsecondary education. The contents of this document focus on the purpose of the survey, a description of the survey method, and an interpretation of the results in a forecast of changes in postsecondary education. The forecasted changes find postsecondary education more readily accessible to all. More of the students will drop in and out of the system throughout their lifetimes and will participate in programs that lead to vocations. It is anticipated that after 1980 changes in competence and performance requirements will change to general acceptance of work or experience as substitutes for formal programs, and measures of actual competency will be used in place of fulfillment of attendance requirements.
