Workplace Perspectives on Education and Training. Volume I.
Doeringer, Peter B., Ed.
Selections from materials developed for a National Institute of Education two-day workshop to examine workplace perspectives on education and training policy are presented. Participants included employer and trade union representatives, education and training specialists, policy analysts, and government officials. Part I on national perspectives includes the following: Public Education and Industrial Training in the 1980s (Clark C. Abt); Training in Industry (Ernst W. Stromsdorfer); and Changing Worker Values and Worker Utilization of Industrial Skills Training (Herbert L. Selesnick). In the following sections on workplace perspectives, papers include: Training by and for Employers (Bruce Vermeulen); Education and Training Programs at Xerox (John R. Dinkelspiel); Education and Training Programs in the Bell System (Judith W. Springer); Training for Unionized and Regulated Occupations (Patricia Flynn Pannell); Education and Training Programs of the International Union of Operating Engineers (Phyllis H. Isreal); Training and Development at Michael Reese Hospital (Dean L. Kimmerly); Training by and for the Government (Susan Hudson-Wilson); and An Overview of Training in the Public Sector (David A. Smith). Four major functions are cited for the education and training system: (1) to prepare the work force to meet the nation's job requirements; (2) to facilitate adaptation to structural change in the economy; (3) to improve economic performance; and (4) to promote more equal access to employment. A section is included with information about the contributors. (LC)
