The Terrain of Postsecondary Education.
Hodgkinson, Virginia A., Ed.; And Others
The current state of postsecondary education is reviewed for the following sectors: undergraduate, graduate, and professional schools; proprietary and vocational schools; corporate education and training; labor and union education programs; and the educational efforts of the federal government. Population trends and the effects of ethnicity, region, and age on the population pool are reviewed to provide estimates for future postsecondary education enrollments. In addition, the need for education and training investment in America's human resources is examined by looking at current labor force profiles, the structure of employment, and technology trends and their implications for workers and worker education. The federal role in providing access to postsecondary education from the post-World War II era until current times is also traced. Information for the postsecondary sectors covers enrollments; revenues; resource allocation; tuition; federal financial aid; sources of financial support; academic departments offering degrees by level; distribution of financial assistance by selected financial assistance programs for proprietary vocational schools; courses in adult education by type and provider; civilian federal training costs, courses, and participation; and military training loads and expenditures.
