Higher Education and Employment in the USSR and in the Federal Republic of Germany.
Avakov, R., Ed.; And Others
Results of two studies on higher education and employment in the USSR and the Federal Republic of Germany (West Germany) are presented. For both countries, the development of the higher education system as part of the overall system of education is discussed, with emphasis on expansion of higher education, and access to college over the years. Attention is also directed to: development of graduate employment, outside influences on curriculum development, and labor markets for college graduates. The section on the USSR, by D. Chuprunov, R. Avakov, and E. Jiltsov, covers (1) the evolution of the problem of high-level personnel in the process of industrialization as socialism was built and advanced and (2) the role of higher education in scientific and technological development. Chapter topics and authors for the West German section are: higher education and the labor market in West Germany (U. Teichler, B. C. Sanyal); recent developments in higher education (Klaus Hufnerder); labor market and educational forecasts (Manfred Tessaring); underemployment of college graduates (Dirk Hartung); and certificates and recruitment (Michael Buttgereit). A comparison of higher education, employment, and educational planning in the two countries is provided by M. Buttgereit. (SW)
