Tough Choices or Tough Times: The Report of the New Commission on the Skills of the American Workforce. Revised and Expanded Edition
Jossey-Bass, An Imprint of Wiley
"Tough Choices or Tough Times," the report of the New Commission on the Skills of the American Workforce, shows how the dynamics of the global economy will lead to a steady decline in the American standard of living if this country does not undertake the first thorough overhaul of its education system in a century. This new revised and expanded version of "Tough Choices or Tough Times" includes: (1) An updated Introduction; (2) A summary of the Commission's proposals; and (3) Commentaries on the proposals by Denis Doyle, Lawrence Mishel, Michael Petrilli, Diane Ravitch, and Richard Rothstein, with responses from members of the Commission. "Tough Choices or Tough Times" provides a well-researched analysis of the issues and a compelling set of proposals for changing our system of education. Appended are: (1) The Study; (2) Trustees of the National Center on Education and the Economy; (3) Biographies of the Members of the Commission; and (4) Commission Staff and Associates. [For related report, "Tough Choices or Tough Times: The Report of the "New" Commission on the Skills of the American Workforce. Executive Summary," see ED522105.]
