Education, Universities, and Economic Development.
This speech emphasizes a relatively new and important function of the university-equalizing educational opportunity. The need for education and its potential as human capital are examined in light of the rapid educational advancement. Universities must face this advancement and meet the needs of society. A review of Negro development reaffirms the need for equalization of educational opportunity. The opening of educational opportunity is seen as an effort to create human capital. Human capital is expected to create additional income, thus, to raise the standard of living and promote family stability. (MJM)
