The Short and Active History of The Agnew Group
Bronner, Michael
Delta Pi Epsilon Journal, v49 n1 p3-8 Win 2007
The field of business education has been driven by the needs of society since the beginnings of the nation's history--from apprenticeship training, to factory vestibule settings, to the emergence of the for-profit private business schools, to specialized vocational high schools, to the comprehensive secondary school, to business teacher preparation at the college level. The impact of federal, state, and local educational policies, technological innovations, national and global events, and a diverse, global workforce, all serve to remind that one must continue to adapt to change. Over the years many have worked proactively to create a future for business education, with many such recommendations coming from research and advocacy groups called think tanks. In the mid-1980s, for example, an action agenda for business education emerged from one such think tank activity. This article describes the genesis and contributions of The Agnew Group (TAG), a think tank that worked to identify the issues that business educators need to address, perhaps through professional organizations, in the coming decade.
