Title:Across the great divide: Perspectives of CEOs and college presidents on America's higher education and skills gap
Source:http://www.americaspromise.org/Our-Work/Grad-Na...
Date:2011
Organization:America's Promise Alliance
Short Description:This report offers a clear-eyed view of the state of American education, where our business and higher education leaders can make a difference, and a roadmap for focusing on what needs to be done to prepare future workers for the demands of tomorrow’s economy.
Annotation:America’s companies and higher education institutions have significant roles to play in closing the knowledge and skills gap in the American workforce and in shaping the workforce of the future. To better understand the views of these two critical groups of leaders, Civic Enterprises and Hart Research surveyed a national cross section of 450 business leaders and 751 post-secondary leaders at community colleges, private sector career colleges, and less selective fouryear institutions for their perspectives on the challenges, goals, and work ahead to cross the great divide. This report offers a clear-eyed view of the state of American education, where our business and higher education leaders can make a difference, and a roadmap for focusing on what needs to be done to prepare future workers for the demands of tomorrow’s economy.
