Education System Benefits of U.S. Metric Conversion.
Phelps, Richard P.
Evaluation Review, v20 n1 p84-118 Feb 1996
U.S. metric conversion efforts are reviewed as they have affected education. Education system benefits and costs are estimated for three possible system conversion plans. The soft-conversion-to-metric plan, which drops all inch-pound instruction, appears to provide the largest net benefits. The primary benefit is in class time saved. (SLD)
