The Education-Enterprise Relationship: Meeting the Needs of a Productive Society.
Felker, Roberta M., Ed.
This report includes three papers addressing the issue of technology and education written from the perspectives of business and corporate concerns, educator's concerns, and "collaborative" concerns (labor, business, education, and government). The report includes a commentary by the editor providing an overview of the papers' themes and discussing areas not raised by the papers. In "Forecasting Needs: The High Technology Industry," Robert P. Henderson discusses the conditions that impede the growth of high technology industry and focuses on the lack of proper technical preparation of students in elementary and secondary schools. The second paper, "Improving Math, Science and Technical Education" by Michael W. Kirst, outlines the factors related to modernizing American industry, including public education's need to improve students' technical preparation; also discussed are alternative solutions to the problem. The third paper, "Minnesota Wellspring: Educators as Collaborators in Spurring Technological Innovation" by Donna J. Knight, describes the themes that underpin the Wellspring organization, a collaboration of leaders in labor, business, education, and government. Six appendixes are included. (MD)
