A SYSTEM APPROACH FOR EDUCATION.
STEWART, DONALD
TECHNIQUES IN EDUCATION MUST BE DEVELOPED WHICH ARE IN KEEPING WITH TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCE. A DOCTRINE OF "CONCURRENCY" IS NECESSARY SO THAT EDUCATION WILL COINCIDE WITH NEW DEVELOPMENTS IN SOCIETY. A SYSTEM APPROACH IN EDUCATION CAN DO THIS BY PROVIDING A CONCEPTUAL FRAMEWORK FOR PLANNING, ORDERLY CONSIDERATION OF FUNCTIONS AND RESOURCES, AND A PHASED AND ORDERED SEQUENCE LEADING TO THE ACCOMPLISHMENT OF SPECIFIED AND OPERATIONALLY DEFINED ACHIEVEMENTS. A SYSTEMS APPROACH SHOULD PROVIDE A WAY TO CHECK RELATION OF PERFORMANCE TO FACTORS REQUIRED BY ECONOMY. THE LATTER REQUIRES SOME NATIONAL CONTROL OF THE TRAINING AND EDUCATION DEVELOPED THROUGH THE SYSTEM. THE PROPOSED SUBSYSTEMS TO THE OVERALL SYSTEM WILL ELIMINATE SUCH EXISTING PROBLEMS AS SURPLUS SKILLED UNEMPLOYMENT, BALANCE OF UNEMPLOYMENT THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY, AND DISPARITY IN ACHIEVEMENT CAUSED BY INDIVIDUAL DIFFERENCES. FROM ESTABLISHED SKILL AND PROGNOSIS OF FUTURE EMPLOYMENT NEEDS, AN ASSESSMENT CAN BE MADE OF THE PROBABLE CONTENT TO BE TAUGHT. CORRESPONDING CURRICULUM CHANGES MUST KEEP PACE WITH THE PREDICTED NEEDS AND CAN BE COMPUTER DIAGNOSED. A SPECIFIC TRAINING PERIOD WILL RELY ON COMPUTER ANALYSIS OF THE FUNCTIONS A STUDENT IS DIRECTED TOWARD. A PARTICULAR STUDENT'S QUALIFICATIONS WILL BE COMPUTER ASSESSED TO NARROW FIELDS FOR HIS CHOICE OF CAREER. A BIBLIOGRAPHY IS INCLUDED.
