Description

Skills Beyond School: Creating a Coherent System to Meet the Needs of Students and EmployersThe OECD Reports on American Higher EducationIn Collaboration with the Organization for Economic Cooperation and DevelopmentThe OECD report provides an important outsider's perspective, on challenges to America's global standing in postsecondary education outcomes and what lawmakers could and should do to address them.The report recommends building on the unique strengths of the American postsecondary system and also makes clear that until decades-old problems of quality, coherence, and transparency are addressed, the United States will not continue to lead the world in postsecondary outcomes.The OECD's paper serves as the American country report for its Skills Beyond School project, which focuses on the most rapidly growing segment of U.S. higher education, Career and Technical Education (CTE). Research shows that a decade from now one in three American jobs will require a CTE qualification, but the report finds that rising tuition costs, widely varying quality standards, and the growth of for-profit and online alternatives have introduced sizeable risks and complexities into the American higher education market. Using examples from U.S. states and other OECD countries, the report makes recommendations that could benefit CTE programs and higher education as a whole.Featuring:ModeratorTravis ReindlSenior Program Officer, Bill&Melinda Gates FoundationSusan GallagherProject Director, National STEM ConsortiumDane LinnVice President, Business RoundtableDavid McCordDirector, Joint Apprenticeship and Training CommitteeMarlene SeltzerPresident and CEO, Jobs for the FutureSandi VitoDirector, 1199SEIU/League Training and Upgrading Fund and Greater New York Education Fundhttp://newamerica.net/events/2013/skills_beyond_school_oecd
