Do Employers Really Need More Educated Youths?
Rosenbaum, James E.; Binder, Amy
Sociology of Education, v70 n1 p68-85 Jan 1997
Compares employers' stated needs for entry-level workers possessing better academic skills with their training programs and hiring practices to supposedly meet this need. Discovers a dichotomy between the stated needs and the corrective practice. Most remedial training emphasizes short-term job skills and hiring practices do not reward academic achievement. (MJP)
