  • There is a common belief, significantly shared by many beginning formal tertiary studies in education, that ‘education’ has a fixed meaning, and distinct aims, which can be unveiled either by turning up a dictionary or by consulting a favoured authority. So, in the very first lecture of every course I give, I stress that ‘education’ is a changing, contested and often highly personalised, historically and politically constructed concept. To illustrate this I read a few dictionary definitions of ‘education’, as well as a selected set of stated ‘aims of education’.

  • Be prepared, learn all you can, both broadly and specifically. That is, become as well-rounded as you can. Concentrating on sports and beer will serve you well in some settings, but will not be enough for most others. The more knowledgeable you are, the higher you can rise, and a liberal education will add to the scope and quality of your judgment. At the same time, employers want to know what you can do well, and it is valuable to become expert in some particular sphere(s).

  • I show that, just as investment bankers are key drivers of financial markets, shocks in financial markets have important and lasting effects on the careers of investment bankers. Specifically, using data from a 1996 and 1998 survey of several thousand Stanford MBAs, I find that stock market conditions while MBA students are in school have a large effect on whether they go directly into investment banking upon graduation. This effect of themarkets on initialMBA placement turns out to be a lasting determinant of career choice and earnings....

The funding streams and reporting requirements of Federal and state workforce programs would allow for innovation in the delivery of services.

  • The purpose of the following selections is to present to students of English a few of Huxley's representative essays. Some of these selections are complete; others are extracts. In the latter case, however, they are not extracts in the sense of being incomplete wholes, for each selection given will be found to have, in Aristotle's phrase, "a beginning, a middle, and an end." That they are complete in themselves, although only parts of whole essays, is due to the fact that Huxley, in order to make succeeding material clear, often prepares the way with a long and careful definition.

  • 76 Business aT a Crossroads High levels of inequality cause serious social problems. In their book, The Spirit Level, Richard Wilkinson and Kate Pickett marshal a wealth of evidence showing that social ills, including rates of physical and mental illness, teenage births, crime, obesity and violence, and relatively low educational performance and social mobility, all correlate much more closely with the degree of inequality within societies than with absolute levels of income. Inequality is the curse of mature, liberal capitalist societies, particularly of the U.S. and the U.K.

  • Nearly 25 years ago, I found myself at one of those crossroads in life. I was nearing the completion of a liberal arts bachelor’s degree, and like so many graduating college students, I had no clue as to which career would utilize the education I had worked so hard to complete. I feared that I would be one of those proverbial waiters, waiting tables while waiting for something better to come along. While scanning the employment section in the local paper, I noticed the numerous employers seeking registered nurses.

  • Anarchism is a social and political ideology which, despite a history of defeat, continually re-emerges in a new guise or in a new country, so that another chapter has to be added to its chronology, or another dimension to its scope. In 1962 George Woodcock wrote a 470-page book, Anarchism, which, continually reprinted as a Penguin Book and translated into many languages, became probably the most widely read book on the subject in the world. Woodcock wrote a series of updating postscripts until his death in 1995....

  • However, through a combination of luck and persistence, I did end up going into IT after I graduated from college with a liberal arts degree.

But in the i ve years after I left college in the mid-1990s, the IT i eld exploded. Lots of new workers poured into IT, and like me, most of them did not have a formal education in IT management....
