Recurrent Education: Investing in a Lifetime of Working and Learning.
Peters, Susan J.
IFG Policy Perspectives, Sum 1983
This summary of information on recurrent education examines three financing models, educational leave of absence, and two policy implications. The financing models analyzed are individual drawing rights, funding through intermediate enterprises, and individual entitlements for recurrent education. To determine the most effective approach to financing, the author examines each in terms of equity, responsiveness, flexibility, and efficiency. Western European educational leave of absence policies that might be integrated into a financing model are also examined. Two policy implications are discussed: that the need for recurrent education is hindered by present state and federal fiscal austerity measures and that states and the federal government must coordinate their effortrs in formulating recurrent education policies. A list of papers on recurrent education is provided. (PB)
