Curriculum : a history of the American undergraduate course of study since 1636 by Frederick Rudolph( Book )

9 editions published between 1977 and 1992 in English and held by 1,231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In addition to describing the traditional college curriculum and comparing historical moments in curriculum change in America, this history defines other historic dimensions: prescription versus free choice, general versus specialized education, elite versus egalitarian education, mass versus individualized instruction, autocratic versus bureaucratic administration, subject-based versus competency-based curricula, and others. The origins of these concepts and the tensions existing between them are addressed. (Mse)

Investment in learning : the individual and social value of American higher education by Howard Rothmann Bowen( Book )

8 editions published between 1977 and 1988 in English and held by 1,081 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Are our colleges and universities worth what they cost? For generations the American people have thought so. Recently, however, the public has become more skeptical toward higher education and other social institutions. Current knowledge of the consequences of higher education is substantial and is found in a vast literature derived mainly from research and scholarship in psychology, sociology, education, philosophy, social criticism, and economics. The time has come to gather the scattered knowledge of the outcomes of higher education into one volume, to interpret and evaluate this knowledge, to raise methodological questions, to provide analysis where empirical data are weak, to judge whether American higher education is worth what it costs, and to suggest policies that may follow from the conclusions. The materials compiled in this book cover: efficiency and accountability; educational goals; cognitive learning; emotional and moral development; practical competence for citizenship and economic productivity; practical competence for family life, consumer behavior, leisure, and health; the holistic approach; institutional similarities and differences; societal outcomes from education; societal outcomes from research and public service; progress toward human equality; economic returns on investment in education; the views of social critics; the cost of higher education; and the future of American higher education.

It is divided into two parts. The first consists of basic information about American College curricula, and describes normative practices, their history, strengths and weaknesses, and alternatives. Part two puts this information in philosophical, chronological, institutional, and cultural perspective. (Author/MSE)

Educational leaves for employees : European experience for American consideration by Konrad von Moltke( Book )

3 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Educational leave policies--paid time-off from work for educational purposes--in France, Germany, Italy, and Sweden are compared and extensively analyzed, and also, to a lesser degree, the policies in Austria, Belgium, the Netherlands, Norway, and the United Kingdom. These analyses, intended to be relevant to the American scene in relation to lifelong learning, point to the development of paid educational leave programs in Western Europe as being in the nature of a next step in the evolution of postwar labor market and social policy and not primarily as an educational venture. Emphasis is on the effects of leave policies, rather than on a discussion of their provisions. Answers are provided to questions such as Who participates in leaves? How are they financed? Is training predominantly vocational? To what extent are trade unions involved? How do leaves relate to labor market needs? And What problems remain unresolved? It is noted that one of the most important conclusions--and the one most relevant to the American scene is that, in the absence of strong trade union pressure, paid educational leave programs would not have been adopted in Western Europe. Major chapter headings follow: What Is Educational Leave?; The European Debate on Educational Leave; France; Germany; Sweden; Italy; Austria; Belgium; the Netherlands, Norway, and the United Kingdom; and Problems in Educationl Leave Policies.
