Productivity in Education. Two Addresses.
Haggerty, Patrick E.
This booklet consists of two papers delivered by Patrick Haggerty, chairman of Texas Instruments, Incorporated, on the general topic of productivity in the American educational system. The first paper, "Education, Work, and Productivity," points out that while productivity per man-hour in the private sector of our economy has been increasing, productivity per man-hour in the educational sector has decreased markedly as educators continue to push for lower student/teacher ratios. The author suggests that this trend can be reversed by utilizing such technological advances as video cassettes and instructional television networks to extend education beyond the classroom and improve educational results while increasing student/teacher ratios. The second paper, "R & D and Productivity in Education," suggests that improved educational productivity can best be achieved by changing from our present teacher-oriented educational system to a student-oriented system. To achieve this shift will require an expansion of research and development efforts focusing on student-centered education, the author argues. (JG)
