Professional Education: Present Status and Continuing Problems

by G. Lester Anderson - 1962

In this introductory chapter, three facets of professional service and education for it will be discussed. First, an attempt will be made to give some idea of the dimensions of professional service- that is, how many persons at work may be said to be rendering a professional service. The quantitative dimensions of professional work should give some indication of the dimensions of professional education. The second section of this chapter deals more explicitly with the amount of professional education carried on in the United States, the character of the institutions which provide this type of education, and an approximation of the proportion of higher education which is education for the professions. Finally, a more explicit introduction to the remainder of this yearbook is presented by naming and briefly developing fifteen continuing as well as current problems of professional education-problems which all areas of education for the professions seem to share more or less in common.
