MetadataShow full item record
In the summer of 1987, the Texas Education Agency enlisted the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs in such a project and began a joint effort to examine the relationship between public education and the economy in Texas. Professors Ray Marshall, John Gronouski, and Robert Glover and students at the LBJ School worked closely with TEA staff in the Department of Research and Information to examine the relationship between the Texas public schools and the economic future of the state. The result of this joint effort is a series of reports concerning education, technology, and the economy. The first of these reports, Economics of Education, by Professor Ray Marshall, focuses on current economic and demographic trends in Texas and their implications for public education. This report will be followed by two additional papers, addressing the issues of technology and the Texas public schools and vocational education and the Texas economy.
