Example text

For all three tests, the average performance of whites with an associate’s degree is higher than the average score of African American and Hispanic adults with a bachelor’s degree. The combination of test score information and educational attainment provides considerable information on skills, but the precise connection with the job market is not clear. The evidence demonstrates that, while more education and higher literacy skills predict higher wage rates, much is left unexplained. A good example is the economic gains attached to a GED, which is sometimes considered an equivalent certification to a high school diploma.

The lack of formal pathways leaves space for workers to move in and out of schooling and training, which are often supplied by opportunistic community colleges, private occupational schools, on-line colleges, adult extension courses, apprenticeships, and often employers themselves. S. school system and the American learning system, Samuelson (2006) argues that these institutions offer workers a second chance, ways of combining school and work, and a close link between education and careers. Their flexibility and relevance, he says, overcome some but not all weaknesses of the mainstream system of high schools and colleges.

One broad and revealing measure is the number of public and private diplomas awarded divided by the number of 17-year-olds. It shows a decline from 77 percent in 1969 to 70 percent in 2000 (Chaplin 2002), but a recent increase back to 75 percent in 2004–2005. Overall, the trends in high school graduation look far less optimistic when using CCD-based measures than when relying on CPS-based data. The low graduation rates based on administrative data raise serious questions about analyses of skills in the United States, as well as about public policies.
