Entitlement Papers. NIE Papers in Education and Work: Number Four.
Kurland, Norman D., Ed.
The entitlement concept (that certain students are entitled to funds for a specified amount of education) is examined from a variety of perspectives dealing with the financing of lifelong learning. In the first paper, by Henry M. Levin, three models are described and analyzed that emphasize the extension of career development opportunities throughout the work life of individuals. A fourth model extending the concept of the provision of learning opportunities of all kinds throughout life is presented by Norman D. Kurland. George J. Nolfi, in the third paper, presents another model that purposes targeting entitlements on persons with low previous levels of education and low income. In another paper Nolfi presents a framework for the analysis of any entitlement proposal. The fifth paper, by Scott E. Sterling, examines the GI bill from an entitlement prespective and discusses the implications of that experience for more general entitlements. The final three papers in the volume examine issues basic to any entitlement approach. Douglas M. Windham looks at the problems associated with the calculation of the costs and benefits of education. Paul E. Barton examines the economic aspects of entitlements from the perspective of the interrelations of education, work, and economic development. Finally, John D. Honey examines the political aspects of entitlements and indicates the considerations that will have to be taken into account in advancing the idea in the public-policy arena. (LBH)
