Recurrent Education: An Alternative System.
Stein, Bruno; Miller, S. M.
The front-end load model in which students enter school during their pre-productive years and then consider their schooling finished is not adequate in today's society. There presently exists several types of programs for education outside the regular school system (organizational, proprietory, manpower and anti-poverty programs, correspondence, television, continuing education at the college level, adult education below the college level, and others), but there is no continuity or development from one program to another. To the disadvantaged, the college dropout, the re-entrants to the job market, and the job shifters and upgraders, education, training, and readjustment aid is necessary at many points. While many programs are offered to remedy this situation, (open university, federally financed training allowances, redesigning job ladder, etc.), the real need is for a comprehensive, easily accessible, quality recurrent education system.
