Long Term Educational Attainment in the United States.
Long-Range Planning Newsletter, v2 n4 p1-8 May 1971
This paper examines the long term trends in degree productivity and the effects of national policy and decisionmaking upon those trends. The examination is based on a historical perspective, a review of demography, degrees and statistical data. Projections of the relative rates of growth of the four levels of educational attainment (high school, baccalaureate, masters and doctorate) are presented. Conclusions indicate the need for quality in education: (a) improve the quality of educational attainment in the elementary and secondary school systems, (b) improve the quality and expand occupational preparation in the 2-year colleges, (c) improve the quality of the programs at the baccalaureate level where institutional growth can and must be provided, and (d) preserve advance degree programs of high quality where they presently exist. A 15-item bibliography is included. (MJM)
