Georgetown University Conference on Recurrent Education (1973)
Ron Gass's speech continues. Frank Newman of Stanford University and Chairman of the United States Task Force on Higher Education, talked about the differences between the United States and Europe in the approach to higher education policy and recurrent education. He talked about higher education and the move from meritocratic to an egalitarian approach and equality of access versus equality of results. He also talked about education and jobs--the dilemma of everyone with a college education competing for jobs and the oversupply of people with a college education. He also mentioned the role of women in higher education and how this affected the job market. He said we can no longer guarantee the social status and income of college graduates and talked about the rise of credentialism. He also stressed the need for recurrent education. After Newman's speech, there was a period of comments from the audience. Unfortunately the sound quality on this portion sometimes made it hard to hear the comments. The conference was co-sponsored by Georgetown University's Public Services Laboratory, HEW, and CERI.
