Expanding the Education Agenda. Meeting the Lifelong Learning Needs of North Dakota's Work Force. A Report on the Recommendations of the Working Conference on Adult/Industry Education and Training (Bismarck, North Dakota, November 14-15, 1988).
North Dakota State Council on Vocational Education, Bismarck.
This report provides the text of panel discussions from a working conference on adult/industry education and training. Four key issues facing North Dakota's education providers are identified: (1) the need for expanded leadership, planning, and a vision for adult and industry education and training; (2) the need for increased financing, both in terms of allocation and dollars, for adult and industry education and training; (3) the need to know what the adult and industry education and training needs are from the business perspective; and (4) the need to provide greater program flexibility for adult and industry education and training. A series of recommendations is presented for each issue. The bulk of the document consists of appendices containing a matrix of North Dakota's work force and training system; the conference program and participant list; highlights from the keynote address, "How Big Is the Challenge" (Leholm); weighted scores for 25 issues; the presentations of two legislative panelists (Hoffner, Richard), two private sector panelists (Gray, Kemnitz), five state panelists (Dietz, Graham, Hirsch, Rodenbiker, Tracy), and four education panelists (Burchinal, Richardson, Sanstad, Barnhardt); and closing remarks (Anderson).
