Costs and returns of technical education; a pilot study by Adger B Carroll( Book )

3 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The objectives of this study were (1) to obtain estimates of costs and returns of technical education, (2) to compute social and private rates of return on investments in technical education, and (3) to compare these with estimates of the rate of return on general education and investments in tangible capital. Costs and returns were measured by comparing earnings of a group of 45 white male gaston technical school graduates with earnings for a group of 45 white male high school graduates having similar characteristics. The comparison covered a 7-year period. The estimated average total cost to society for the two years of technical education was $7,425 per student which included $5,197 for loss in productivity while in school and $2,228 for costs of providing school facilities, supplies, and personnel. The average total private cost per student for the two years of technical schooling amounted to $4,920. the average annual income from investment in technical education increased from $553 in the first year after schooling to $1,036 in the fourth post-graduate year. The estimated social rate of return on investments in technical education was 16.5 percent and the private rate, 22 percent, assuming that per capita real earnings would increase over time at the rate of 2 percent per annum.

A study of supply and demand for high school vocational teachers in three southeastern states by Adger B Carroll( Book )

3 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A key factor in educational planning is providing for an adequate and appropriate supply of teachers for future occupational education needs. This study develops an economic demand and supply model for vocational teachers in secondary schools, a model of the market for teacher services. Data for the study were taken from census reports and from State directors of vocational education in North Carolina, Georgia, and Tennessee. Variables used in the analysis included the number of employed teachers, average annual salary, related employment, education level, experience variables in developing models of the demand for and supply of teacher services and also demonstrate the difficulties in measuring the relationships involved.

An economist's view of planning problems in community college systems by Robert M Fearn( Book )

2 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is most important in an investment plan is not the cost of the investment, but the relationship of benefits to costs--the internal rate of return. Without an overall plan intended to reflect the relative size of benefit flows, there will be a strong tendency for costs to dominate the system. Highly skilled administrators who succeed in "keeping costs down" are often lauded for this, while leading them to expand programs with low rates of return at the expense of those with higher rates. To avoid substantial opportunity losses imposed on society and students, community colleges need to examine their planning approaches to avoid these gross errors, to bring the system closer to maximizing benefits to society and students

Regional Conference on Supply and Demand of Teachers of OccupationalEducation in the South. Center Seminar and Conference Report, Number 4 by Adger B Carroll( Book )

1 edition published in 1966 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Twenty-eight educators, economists, and others interested in occupational education attended the conference to consider (1) regulation, organization, and administration of federal and state agencies, teacher training institutions, and local schools as related to the supply and demand of teachers, (2) operation of the teacher labor market and supply and demand conditions for teachers at all educational levels, and (3) educational planning. Texts of five papers comprise this report. "Educational institutions and the demand for occupational education personnel," presented by charles H. rogers, discusses organizational changes affecting the demand for occupational education personnel. These are increased financial support, less traditional objectives and approach, increased specialization, and cultural lag. "Educational institutions and the supply of occupational education teachers," by merle E. strong, provides information about present practices, certification standards, changes in vocational programs and teacher education, costs to students, support programs, and legislation and innovations. "Some aspects of teacher supply and demand," by john K. folger, reviews the supply and demand for elementary, secondary, and college teachers, discusses teacher quality, and indicates some problems in studying this supply and demand. "Staffing junior colleges," by david G. brown and edith H. parker, discusses the operation, efficiency, and improvement of the teacher labor market. "Educational planning," by J. alan thomas, discusses the economist's approach to educational planning by the use of three types of analyses and planning models. (Em)

Costs and Returns for Investments in Technical Schooling by a Group ofNorth Carolina High School Graduates. Economics Research Report No. 5 by Adger B Carroll( Book )

1 edition published in 1967 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Personal, educational, employment, and earnings data were collected from 45 matched pairs, each pair consisting of a Gaston Technical Institute graduate and a high school classmate who did not engage in post secondary education. The objective of the study was to estimate the functional relationship between 2 years of technical schooling and the incomes of the graduates. Initial interviews were held in the summer and fall of 1963 and a second interview was held in September 1964 to update the data. Regression analysis was used to control the sources of variance related to home and community environment, academic performance in high school, civilian and military experience, and investments in migration. Findings included: (1) The average total cost per technical graduate was $7,425, foregone income accounted for 70 percent of this amount, (2) Approximately one-third of this cost was paid from public funds, (3) Average adjusted first year earnings were $555 higher for the technical graduates, (4) Average monetary returns increased $161 per year for the first 4 years after technical schooling. (5) An estimated value of technical graduates' additional leisure time was $446 annually, and (6) Constant annual return projections to age 65 indicated a 16.7 percent rate of return for technical graduates, while similar projections based on differential annual returns indicated a 20.1 percent rate of return. The appendix includes the regression formula and design. (Em)

An Economist's View of Planning Problems in Community College Systems. Occasional Paper No. 10 by Robert M Fearn( Book )

1 edition published in 1970 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Major factors that have led to the recent concern and heavy involvement in educational research and planning are: (1) society's resources are being used to finance educational activities; (2) the role of education in the economic growth; and (3) the increased recognition that the quantity of education influences the individual's level of income and, hence, the distribution of income among individuals. The concept of investment in human knowledge and skills, I.E., human capital, provides an important theoretical framework for discussing educational planning. Educational activities are viewed primarily as investment activities. The student is viewed as a demander of educational services and as a supplier of labor and human capital services in the employment market. The educational institution or organization is viewed as an open system operating in a national or in an international economy and society. The three major types of planning used to guide community college systems are: (1) the manpower requirements or "needs" approach, (2) the social demand approach, and (3) the benefit-cost or rate of return approach. The manpower requirements approach has been the most widely used. The benefit-cost or rate of return approach is particularly well suited for the analysis of occupational education at community colleges. Each of the planning approaches used by and available to the community college has substantial limitations, but the available methods can avoid gross errors and can bring the system closer to maximizing social benefits.
