All one system : demographics of education--kindergarten through graduate school by Harold L Hodgkinson( Book )

2 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report is a demographic study of the United States education system from kindergarten through post-graduate education. Part 1 provides a briefing on the major demographic trends that form the framework of the analysis in terms of: (1) number of births in different groups; (2) rate of age increase in various groups due to varying birth rates; (3) changes in family status; (4) differences in educational needs by region; and (5) education, including educational supply and job demand, and the growing need for day care and early childhood programs such as Head Start. Part 2 concerns the retention of students through the school system to high school graduation. Part 3 concerns the accessibility of college to different socioeconomic groups. Part 4 discusses retention of students through college graduation in the context of the number of years it takes students to reach that goal. Throughout, suggestions are offered on how to deal with the impact of increased minorities in the educational system and how best to structure curricula to better educate the population as a whole.

The campus senate: experiment in democracy by Harold L Hodgkinson( Book )

5 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The questions surrounding "citizen" participation in governance are important in American society generally, and some of these questions are raised in this analysis of the performance of broadly-based campus senates. Of 688 institutions identified in a national survey as having campus senates, 364 responded to a more detailed questionnaire dealing with such questions as constituencies represented on the senate, how they were chosen, and what the senate's areas of responsibility were. Data from 310 of these institutions along with information provided by participant observers at 15 institutions and by the Institutional Functioning Inventory, were used to study the number, functions, and consequences of broadly-based campus senates. The findings of this study are discussed with regard to shared decision-making, the importance of the advisory role, the mission of the institution and its size, senate size, special interest groups, and the impact of collective bargaining.

Beyond the schools : how schools & communities must collaborate to solve the problems facing America's youth by Harold L Hodgkinson( Book )

2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 93 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Strategies for developing school/community collaboration to solve the problems facing America's youth are presented in this booklet. Part I, section 1 reviews the conditions that place students at risk, conditions engendered by changes in the family and ethnic distribution and insufficient spending for education. The second section of part I presents arguments for education as the best defense against crime and poverty. Two conclusions are that America's children are a truly endangered species and that socioeconomic problems of at-risk students must be addressed. The second part of the booklet highlights 10 holistic strategies for educational improvement developed by the National School Boards Association and the American Association of School Administrators. A rationale and starting point are described for each of the following strategies: focus on children; establish collaboration among school boards, administrators, teachers, community leaders, and governmental institutions at the federal, state, and local levels; involve parents and other adult volunteers; offer parent education program in every school; renew the school curriculum; ensure equal and ready access to high quality education; provide early childhood education and child care programs; attract quality educators with emphasis on minorities; demand adequate funding; and help immigrant assimilation into the mainstream.

Institutions in transition; a study of change in higher education by Harold L Hodgkinson( Book )

7 editions published between 1970 and 1971 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report presents the result of a comprehensive study of changes that have occurred in higher education over the last two decades. Part 1 presents a longitudinal analysis based on data in the us Office of Education directories. The data deal with: (1) type of institutional control; (2) level of degree offered; (3) type of program offered; (4) sexual composition of student body; (5) student enrollment; and (6) institutions added, dropped, or merged. Part 2 discusses the questionnaire to which 1230 institutions responded, its methodology, and the representativeness of the sample. The questionnaire was designed to answer the major question: to what degree do variables such as the above plus size of institution, institutional purpose, and geographic location, seem to be related to specific changes an institution has undergone? Samplewide trends in changes are discussed in terms of the student body, faculty, and administration, and changes are analyzed in terms of each variable. The report also presents a summary of changes by type of institution, and the results of the questionnaire sent to the institutional presidents in which they listed the most significant events that had taken place in their institutions' recent history. A summary of the academic preparation and mobility patterns of the presidents is included. The report concludes with a special analysis of student protest. (Af)

Why education R & D? by Harold L Hodgkinson( Book )

6 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Education research is, or should be, the systematic investigation and solution of critically important problems affecting what and how children learn. This is a complex undertaking, given the size and complexity of American education. Critically important educational problems can be dealt with by supporting a systematic, national effort to examine problems scientifically, develop and test solutions, and see to it that the final results reach those who can make use of them. However, research in education poses problems very different from those in the physical sciences. Often a good research program will develop useful curriculum materials that produce demonstrable results, only to have the socioeconomic population change drastically with the result that materials and techniques that were designed specifically for one population simply do not work for another. Educators need to revise their expectations of what the educational system can do and admit that families, churches, neighborhoods--in fact, the entire range of factors that form an individual's environment--have a critical role to play in the total development of the young. It is important that educational research and development be linked more directly to the world of practice. There is now a strong acceptance of the proposition that the teacher, the school administrator, and even local citizens must be involved. The National Institute of Education sees such a partnership as a mandate for cooperative effort. State departments of education, local school systems, and professional associations should be indispensable colleagues in any federal effort to improve education. (Jd)
The same client : the demographics of education and service delivery systems by Harold L Hodgkinson( Book )

3 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the United States, services (such as education, health care, housing, and transportation) are provided for citizens by a bewildering array of agencies at many government levels. Service organizations must learn to communicate across functional lines, and educators must become familiar with other service providers at various levels. This means perceiving the client as the most important part of the organizations providing services to that person, family, or group. The rationale is that these agencies are all serving the same children and families as clients. This approach is the most efficient, effective, and humane way to deliver services in an era of diminishing financial resources. Drawing on numerous maps, tables, and statistics, this report explores the complex interrelationships among family demography, housing, transportation, health, crime, and education. Interagency cooperation and taxpayer investment in families' basic needs are essential to prevent future problems (like crime, illiteracy, mental retardation) and reduce the need for costly programs to deal with them. For example, it would be more cost-effective to help low-income families secure affordable housing and to supply small grants to cover broken down cars and medical emergencies than to maintain these same families on welfare. Prisons are another costly service that might be reduced by investing more heavily in early education and college access programs. Recent occupational and demographic trends (including metropolitan areas moving across state lines) are provided to support an interactive, client-centered agenda and recommendations for achieving it.

A demographic look at tomorrow by Harold L Hodgkinson( Book )

4 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper uses data from the 1990 census to investigate changes in demography that are very likely to occur between 1990 and 2010. The paper begins by examining changes that occurred in the United States between 1980 and 1990. Some overall growth rates for various racial and ethnic groups are examined, as well as growth rates for different regions of the United States. Data on how population changes affected congressional representation, prisoners and dropouts, and shifts in families and households also are included. Among the trends likely to occur between 1990 and 2010 is that populations of minority youth increasingly will become concentrated in a small number of states. The next section of the paper examines the implications of these trends for education and jobs. A major issue to be considered is the relationship between the inner-city and the surrounding suburbs and which political and social problems will be addressed and solved. The paper concludes by offering a scenario for the next two decades based on current demographic trends. A 14-item list of the sources used in this report is included, as is an appendix in the form of a table: Total Children Under Age 18 and Minority Youth As a Percent of the Total Youth Population by State, 1990 and Projections for 2000 and 2010.

The demographics of American Indians : one percent of the people, fifty percent of the diversity by Harold L Hodgkinson( Book )

3 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This publication draws on census figures and various other sources to pull together the available demographic data on American Indians and Alaska Natives. According to census figures, in the United States in 1988 there were L.7 million Native Americans belonging to about 500 tribes and native groups and speaking about 200 languages, but only 308 groups have a relationship with the federal government. Consequently, federal Indian agencies use numbers different from those used by the Census Bureau. Sections on population and residence (1) compare American Indian population, age, birth rate, infant mortality, mortality rate, suicide rate, and poverty rate to figures for total U.S. and non-White populations; (2) estimate numbers of Indians living on or near reservations in 21 states; and (3) provide details on the 10 states with largest Indian populations, the 10 largest tribes, and the 10 most populous reservations. The section on health discusses birth rates, infant mortality rates, mortality rates and leading causes of death, alcoholism death rates, and life expectancy. Sections on education and employment examine school enrollments; high school dropout rates; higher education enrollment; educational risk factors; associate, bachelor, and masters degrees awarded in selected subject areas, and unemployment. This publication contains 23 references and 22 data tables, graphs, and maps. (Sv)

California : the state and its educational system by Harold L Hodgkinson( Book )

2 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Information concerning characteristics of California and its educational system are presented, with attention to population trends, the proportion of ethnic residents, the age distribution, median family income, the economy, school enrollments and completion rates, and college attendance and graduation. Notable findings/conclusions include: 15% of Californians were born in another country; many of California's children are born into poverty, into homes where no English is spoken, or without two caring parents; a majority of Californians will be Black, Asian-American, Native American, and Hispanic shortly after the year 2000; public school quality, as measured by achievement test scores, has dropped during more than a decade, as have most measures of school funding; the quality of California higher education is affected by the quality of the public schools; the three levels of California higher education (community college, state university, University of California) are not currently functioning to increase the participation of minority groups in higher education, particularly in terms of the transfer function from one level to the next; the state needs to pay more attention to the entire educational system and how each level affects the others; particularly important are preschool and junior high, as well as the transfer function in higher education.
