Education and the New Economy: A Policy Planning Exercise

C. Stasz, J. Chiesa, W. Schwabe

In June 1997, the NCRVE site at RAND conducted a policy exercise to help understand the development of education and training in the near future. Participants included about two dozen education researchers and decisionmakers from across the U.S. This report describes the structure and outcomes of the discussions, as well as potential implications for education policy, the allocation of funds, and the design of an educational system to meet future needs. Themes that emerged were the need for (1) standards for school and work skills, (2) coordination between academic and vocational education, (3) lifelong learning, and (4) professional development for teachers.
