Immigration in a changing economy : California's experience by Kevin F McCarthy( Book )

8 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Steadily increasing immigration to California over the past thirty years has profoundly affected the state. Some observers of these changes see the extreme diversity of California's population as the harbinger of where the nation is headed in the long term. Others see California as the symbol of a major backlash against immigrants and immigration. How has California benefited from immigration? What impact have immigrants had on the state's job market? How have they affected the demand for federal and state services? What has been their education and economic progress since their arrival? This book summarizes the findings of a comprehensive study fully documented in Immigration in a Changing Economy: California's Experience, by Kevin F. McCarthy and Georges Vernez. Using a question-and-answer framework, it discusses the impact immigration has had on the state's demography, economy, people, and institutions, drawing lessons for California's future as well as for other states and the nation

World population shifts : boom or doom? by Kevin F McCarthy( Book )

4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The structure of world population growth is changing. Currently, the world's population of roughly 6 billion is growing by an additional billion people every 12 to 13 years. This average growth rate (1.4 percent) masks the fact that some parts of the world are growing much faster than others. Developed countries are growing at less than 0.3 percent per year, while the rest of the world is growing almost six times that fast. These demographic differences, as well as widening economic differences, between the developed and less-developed world are increasing the flow of people toward the developed world. How the developed world responds to these immigration pressures will largely determine whether such pressures become a precursor to boom or doom. This presentation examines population shifts in different parts of the world, their effects on the flow of people across borders, and potential responses by the developed world to growing immigration pressures
Assessing natural gas and oil resources : an example of a new approach in the Greater Green River Basin by Debra S Knopman( Book )

4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Natural gas demand in the United States is projected to increase by 50 percent over the next 25 years, and most of this demand is projected to be met by increasing domestic production. Much of the nation's future natural gas supply is located on federal lands in the intermountain west. Consequently, demands on federal land managers to open western lands for energy exploration and development are increasing rapidly. This report presents a new approach to assessing natural gas and oil resources that is intended to help federal land managers with strategic land use planning by expanding the scope of these assessments to include economic and environmental considerations. This approach provides a robust understanding of energy resource characteristics by accounting for the economics associated with production and by moving some of the environmental characterization steps upstream in the decisionmaking process. This will allow land managers to better distinguish energy resources in different areas and therefore help prioritize areas for consideration for energy resource development. The approach is demonstrated for the Greater Green River Basin in Southwestern Wyoming, which is estimated to contain about 9 percent of the nation's future natural gas supply
Working smarter to leave no child behind : practical insights for school leaders by Brian M Stecher( Book )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Accountability based on student test results is the heart of the No Child Left Behind Act, which assumes that schools can solve their problems if given proper incentives and technical assistance, and that parents should have educational alternatives if the schools fail to do so. This paper discusses evidence on accountability systems, describes the act's accountability model and its underlying assumptions, and offers educators specific recommendations for effective operation in an era of accountability

California's K-12 public schools : how are they doing?( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As recently as the 1970s, California's public schools were considered to be among the nation's best. Today, however, there is widespread recognition that the schools are no longer top performers. As a consequence, many Californians share a growing sense of alarm about the ineffectiveness of their public education system and the generation of children whose educational needs are not being met. Researchers at the RAND Corporation examined California's system of kindergarten through grade 12 (K-12) public schools on several dimensions, including student achievement and other student outcomes that schools may influence, as well as school finances, teachers, and facilities. Their goal was to describe the state of California's K-12 public schools, not to pinpoint why schools are in the shape they are or to advocate solutions (except where one seemed obvious from their findings). This descriptive report should be of interest to policymakers at the state and federal levels and to educators, especially in California. Parents may also benefit from the information it provides -- from Publisher Description
Measuring hard-to-measure student competencies : a research and development plan by Brian M Stecher( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Efforts to prepare students for college, careers, and civic engagement have traditionally emphasized academic skills, but a growing body of research suggests that interpersonal and intrapersonal competencies, such as communication and resilience, are important predictors of postsecondary success and citizenship. One of the major challenges in designing educational interventions to support these outcomes is a lack of high-quality measures that could help educators, students, parents, and others understand how students perform and monitor their development over time. This report provides guidelines to promote thoughtful development of practical, high-quality measures of interpersonal and intrapersonal competencies that practitioners and policymakers can use to improve valued outcomes for students
