Abstract:

Is American educationtraining helping or hindering its competitiveness in an increasingly international marketplace From the initial alarms of the 1983 A Nation at Risk report by the National Commission on Excellence in Education to the recent 1991 National Education Goals Report, the prevailing attitude is that the United States is not meeting international academic standards...whatever these standards may be. As South Carolina Governor Carroll A. Campbell, Jr. R, Chairman of the National Education Goals Panel, puts it, Our students are not world class and we recognize it. This research paper provides an economic baseline for the upper two segments of the education industry post-secondary higher education and vocational-technical voc-tech training. Post-Secondary and Voc-Tech Training are analyzed per the standard organizational studies model developed by Edward S. Mason structure the players, conduct their behavior, and performance how well they do.
