New England Board of Higher Education, Boston, MA.; New England Center for Continuing Education, Durham, NH.
Information from the 1987 Future of New England survey is presented, gaining the perspectives of the region's business, higher education, and government leaders about five major areas of concern to the New England states: economic growth, internationalization of the economy, education and training, environmental concerns, and public policy priorities. The survey results were analyzed regionally by leadership type as well as state by state. The state issues addressed in five sections are as follows: Connecticut (education, training, and technical manpower shortages concern leaders, and biotech promises growth); Maine (improving higher education and workers' skills are priorities to Maine's leaders); Massachusetts (challenged to sustain the current economic success, Bay State leaders view biotech as their strongest hope for new economic growth); New Hampshire (leaders are optimistic about economic growth in the Granite State Despite concern over housing costs); Rhode Island (business, government, and higher education partnerships are the key to sustaining the Ocean State's future economic prosperity); and Vermont (conservation of agricultural and natural environments is a priority as the economy progresses). A copy of the Future of New England survey is appended. (SM)
