Education and Human Resources Research at Rand.
Pincus, John; Pascal, Anthony H.
Research projects are reviewed which are representative of the Rand Corporation's education work as it affects policy, management, and research methods. Significant characteristics or results of the projects and studies are briefly described under general categories of education studies and human resources research. Education studies are grouped under the following headings: How Well Do New Approaches Work? How Do Educational Organizations Function? School finance: Problems and Remedies; Schooling, Desegregation, and Discrimination; and Other Studies (Higher Education, Education of the Handicapped, Educational Technology, and Management and Research Policy). Human resources research is discussed and recent projects are reviewed under these headings: Education and Work, Analysis of Educational Personnel Systems, and Research on Welfare Problems. Earlier human resources studies are described under three topics: Equal Opportunity, Employment and Labor Markets, and Welfare. The final section discusses what was learned about education and about human resources policies. A 90-item bibliography lists the project reports. (TA)
