Title:Mounting pressures facing the U.S. workforce and the increasing need for adult education and literacy
Organization:National Center for Higher Education Management Systems
Short Description:At a time when economic competitiveness is determined to a considerable extent by the education levels of a nation’s workforce, the United States is at serious risk of losing its edge in this realm. While the U.S. still has the best-educated workforce in the world, the advantage arises because of the superior education attainment levels of the generation that is approaching the age of retirement. Those entering the workforce have not attained the same level of education as their counterparts in numerous other counties.
Annotation:At a time when economic competitiveness is determined to a considerable extent by the education levels of a nation’s workforce, the United States is at serious risk of losing its edge in this realm. While the U.S. still has the best-educated workforce in the world, the advantage arises because of the superior education attainment levels of the generation that is approaching the age of retirement. Those entering the workforce have not attained the same level of education as their counterparts in numerous other counties. As other countries show consistent decade-to-decade progress in enhancing the education levels of their adult populations, the U.S. has been stuck at essentially the same level for 30 years. Unless the U.S. finds ways to improve its performance in this arena, it will fall farther behind a longer list of competitor countries.
