National Board on Graduate Education Comment on The Newman Task Force on the Federal Role in Graduate Education.
National Board on Graduate Education, Washington, DC.
"Graduate education in the U. S. is in trouble." So states the recently released Report of the Task Force established by the Department of Health, Education and Welfare chaired by Frank Newman. This document presents a brief comment of the National Board of Graduate Education upon the major points and recommendations raised in Newmans' report. The National Board believes that the limited focus of the Newman Task Force is a conceptual flaw that vitiates much of the analysis of graduate education. The limitations created by this narrowed perspective cause the Task Force to omit a number of vital questions and issues regarding the Federal Role in graduate education. The issues answered in this retort include: service-oriented programs, oversupply and undersupply, Ph.D. enrollments, access and discrimination in graduate admission, and the task force recommendations.
