9780761827788: Building Skills for Black Workers: Preparing for the Future Labor Market (The Black Worker in the 21st Century, Vol. 2)

Building Skills for Black Workers assesses the current gap in education and training between African American and white workers, and explores possible remedies. This multi-author volume begins with an examination of the elementary and secondary education system (K-12) and concludes with an analysis of public and private worker training programs, addressing three broad questions: How do workers acquire the skills needed for upward mobility and career advancement? What is the current gap in education and training between black and white workers? And what strategies would reduce the gaps and improve the labor market outcomes for these workers?

About the Author:

Cecilia A. Conrad holds a Ph.D. in Economics from Stanford University. She is the Stedman-Sumner Professor of Economics at Pomona College.

Review:

The essays are accessible and provide a fine start for those who want to know or research why black workers have not done as well as whites and what might be done to bring them closer to parity. Summing Up: RECOMMENDED. General readers; lower-division undergraduate through professional audiences. (H. Kasper Choice)
