The social benefits of education by Jere Richard Behrman( )

18 editions published between 1996 and 2014 in English and held by 1,795 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Those papers, revised and updated, are collected here. Kenneth J. Arrow provides perspective on education and preference formation, and Jere R. Behrman considers general conceptual ad measurement issues in assessing the social benefits of education and policies related to education. These issues are taken up by experts in four fields - health, parenting, the environment, and crime. The introduction and conclusion provide an overview, discuss directions for future studies, and address three common themes: measurement issues regarding what we mean by education and its benefits; basic analytical issues in assessing the impact of education on these social benefits using behavioral data; and whether the social benefits of education justify public policy interventions

Education and Training of 16-to 19-Year-Olds After Compulsory Schoolingin the United States by Nevzer Stacey( Book )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As a follow-up to a study of education and training beyond basic schooling issued in 1985 by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (oecd) and in response to the OECD's request, this paper presents a detailed case study of the United States that focuses on government policies and education and training options for 16- to 19-year-olds after their compulsory schooling is completed. The paper is divided into three main sections: (1) the description of the system, which includes descriptions of the providers of education and training programs and the options available to youths in pursuing education and training; (2) issues and government policies and provisions bearing on these providers and options; and (3) a review of the research evidence on special topics related to this age group. The following are among the conclusions of the study: (1) postsecondary educational and training opportunities for this age group are diverse and flexible; (2) coordinated standards of measurement are lacking; (3) the private sector has become the dominant provider of postsecondary training; and (4) the lack of an explicit national policy produces a lack of coordination among components of the system which may make it more difficult for young people to make informed choices; at the same time, such diversity produces a wide variety of choices and second chances. Data tables and references complete the document. (Kc)
Employer Training of Work-Bound Youth An Historical Review and New Results. Background Paper No. 43 by Nabeel Alsalam( Book )

1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A study of the training opportunities of high school graduates (about 825,000 in 1988) who work immediately after leaving school identified which members of that group get trained, by whom, and with what earnings consequences, based on the experiences of a sample of graduates from their graduation in 1972 until 1986. The following are among the findings: (1) employer-provided training is not an alternative to formal education for acquiring productive skills because work-bound youth receive less training than either non-degree participants or college-bound youth; (2) work-bound youth who receive employer-provided training have substantially higher earnings than those who do not; (3) the public sector employs a much smaller percentage of work-bound youth than does the private sector but is more likely to educate or train them; (4) men and women in the private sector are likely to report equal participation in training, but women report the duration of their training to be only three-fourths or one-half that of men's; and (5) public sector women are less likely to participate in training than public sector men. Altering public or private policy to correct these inequities is not recommended. Before taking a corrective step, policy makers should decide whether additional training would improve the productivity of work-bound youth, whether it is possible to design training programs to compensate for their educational deficiencies, and how can strategies be developed to optimize female employees' productivity with the restraints they have as primary caretakers of children.
