A Proposed National Institute of Education Postsecondary Education Program.
Honey, John C.
At present, NIE, organizationally and in its staff concerns, is primarily oriented to issues as they apply to early learning and primary and secondary education. Currently, the postsecondary activities of NIE are within the Office of Research and Exploratory Studies where a task force on postsecondary education is located. The short-term contract for the present report specified: "considering the time constraints on the project... (1) describe and analyze within a comprehensive conceptual framework the important problems and opportunities in American postsecondary education that are susceptible to significant amelioration or exploitation through research and/or development. (2) specify appropriate research and development strategies by which NIE might respond to these problems and opportunities, relating such strategies to existing R&D, providing cost estimates and, where appropriate, alternative strategies." The principle approaches used in preparing the report were consultation with informed persons concerned with postsecondary education research and the review of relevant literature, documents, and reports. The document includes: introduction; the setting; organizations concerned with postsecondary research and development; selected issues for the NIE postsecondary research program; methods of implementing the NIE postsecondary program; the program, budget and staff; and appendix A to F.
