Economics of higher education by Selma J Mushkin( Book )

25 editions published between 1950 and 1980 in English and held by 374 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume attempts to bring together important contributions about the economics of higher education for the use of educators and others concerned with the formulation of educational policy. Part I of the volume concerns the demands of students for higher education and of the Nation for high-talent manpower. Part ii presents the fundamentals of a theory of investment in people through education. It includes consideration of essential differences and similarities between investment in people and investment in physical capital, an assessment of the educational stock of the labor force, both in terms of original cost and in terms of replacement, and estimates of the volume of resources allocated to education and the return of this investment. Part iii deals with the financing of higher education and covers a wide range of sources of funds, public and private. Part iv describes briefly the ongoing research in the economics of higher education and outlines the range of issues that require still further study. (Author)

Indicators of youth unemployment and education in industrialized nations by Selma J Mushkin( Book )

6 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a compilation of data on youth employment, educational services, and incentives which impact on unemployment of youth and generate social costs beyond the costs of unemployment benefits and waste in education. Each of the report's seven sections presents statistical information that can be used to evaluate current practices in industrialized nations and suggests the potential success of new policies. Following an introductory section and a discussion of comparisons among intercountry data, the first section presents the dimension of youth unemployment in selected industrialized nations and puts it in the context of national population and labor force statistics. Section 2 identifies the characteristics of employment available to youths. The third section presents data on education for young people in various countries. Section 4 provides data on some of the educational changes made to reduce the costs of expanding educational offerings and to accommodate a better transition from school to work. Data are presented in the fifth section on some of the indexes of educational and job equality. The final two sections give information on disincentives to the hiring of youths and social costs related to education and youth unemployment. (Lra)

Recurrent education : [papers] by Selma J Mushkin( Book )

18 editions published between 1973 and 1974 in English and Undetermined and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The volume presents 24 papers deriving from the March 1973, Georgetown University Conference of Recurrent Education, the first major meeting on recurrent education to be held in the United States. The conference findings underscore the many problems and issues favoring greater flexibility in the timing of education and educational systems that give meaning to the broadening of these choices. The intent of the meeting was to provide American scholars a sense of European thinking about recurrent education to promote an interest at home. The papers are organized according to general topics: policy directions (three papers), supply and demand (four papers), target group focus (five papers), education and the world of work (six papers), and financing and politics of recurrent education (five papers). There is a summary analysis of an agenda for research concluding the papers. A 17-page selected bibliography divided into subject categories is included, and an index to the papers provided. (Ag)

A proposal for a "SIR" adjusted index of educational competence by Selma J Mushkin( Book )

4 editions published between 1973 and 1974 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The increasing use of educational performance or outcome measurements for a range of policy purposes points to new procedures for adjusting data for population composition. The purposes include: program formulation, budget resource allocation, grant-in-aid designs, performance incentive payments, consumer information for school selection, and program evaluation and review. This paper outlines methods for controlling population differences to make data on performance more comparable across time and from place to place. The resulting estimates of achievement scores, standardized for population differences, are useful for comparison only. Such comparative indexes remove the influence on average scores of population changes over time, or population differences between schools or school districts. Adjusted scores are not intended to take the place of the basic data but to complement them. Standardization procedures can be applied to achievement test scores and to other measurements of competence such as attitudes or attributes. In this report, achievement score adjustment is used as an example. The selection of sex, income, and race (sir) as control variables is proposed as a first step. (Author/SE)
Indicators of educational outcome, fall 1972 by Morris Cobern( Book )

4 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As an aid to measuring the effectiveness of education in the nation's schools, this monograph focuses on educational outcome indicators rather than the usual input indicators. The report lists 58 different educational outcomes, organized in a sequence of different phases: primary, secondary, and tertiary or intergenerational effects. Some of the outcome indicators listed measure the school systems' effects during, and at the end of, the immediate enrollment process. These indicators include measures of literacy, school retention rates, and test results for college entrance board examinations. An indicator of need for additional training after conventional education is included in the selected list. Other measures of outcome center on education as a "preparation for life" and analyze the effects of the instruction process on earnings, unemployment, and occupational pursuits. Still other measures, in a longer time frame, look at the process in terms of its feedback payoffs to future generations of learners. (Author/JF)
