The Call to Duty: An Historic Overview of How Education Responds to Changes in the Economy
Sky Lark, Taj'ullah
Online Submission
An educated populace is vital to economic growth. Throughout the history of education in America, society has found it necessary to call upon education to address its economic challenges. During the twentieth century, the call for education to address technological advances, economic inequities, and to rescue free enterprise was dire. The U.S. education system has once again been given the call to duty to address the fall of its economy and Community Colleges have always played a significant roll in education reform and are again being put to task to address this country's economic issues via adult education. Community Colleges are the bridge between high school and four year institutions when it comes to Adult Education in their challenging role of accommodating all who want to learn, develop a skill, professional development, a trade, or preparedness for transition into 4 year institutions.
