ORGANIZATIONAL STRATEGIES FOR PLANNED CHANGE IN EDUCATION.
CULBERTSON, JACK A.
FOUR STRATEGIES FOR ACHIEVING LONG-RANGE GOALS IN EDUCATION ARE OUTLINED, AND RELATED CONSTRAINTS, CONTROLS, AND CONFLICTS ARE EVALUATED. STRATEGY 1, A NATIONAL EDUCATION ACADEMY DESIGNED TO PROVIDE TRAINING FOR NEW AND CREATIVE LEADERSHIP, WOULD RECRUIT GIFTED PERSONNEL FOR TRAINING IN A BROAD UNDERSTANDING OF THE MAJOR TRADITIONS OF SOCIETY, WITH INSTRUCTION IN DEFINING MAJOR EDUCATIONAL AND SOCIAL PROBLEMS, FIELD EXPERIENCE, AND A YEAR'S APPRENTICESHIP UPON GRADUATION IN SELECTED EDUCATIONAL ORGANIZATIONS WHICH VALUE INNOVATIVE EFFORT. STRATEGY 2, AN INSTITUTE FOR THE STUDY OF EDUCATIONAL INNOVATION, WOULD FOCUS PRIMARILY ON THE CREATION OF NEW CONCEPTS FOR ADVANCING RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT AND WOULD BE PRIVATELY SUPPORTED, STAFFED BY LEADING SCHOLARS ON 1-YEAR FELLOWSHIPS, AND LOCATED NEAR A MAJOR UNIVERSITY. STRATEGY 3, A PLAN TO FACILITATE STATE AND NATIONAL POLICY DEVELOPMENT, WOULD ENCOURAGE INTERORGANIZATIONAL AND REGIONAL EDUCATIONAL ALLIANCES AND WOULD SEEK TO IMPROVE STATE EDUCATIONAL LEGISLATION, ESPECIALLY THAT RELATED TO THE LONG-RANGE FINANCING OF EDUCATION, BY DEVELOPING A PATTERN OF SUPPORT UPON A COMBINATION OF PUBLIC AND PRIVATE FUNDS. STRATEGY 4, THE APPLICATION OF OPERATIONS RESEARCH TO LOCAL SCHOOL DISTRICT PROBLEMS WOULD UTILIZE TEAMS OF MULTIDISCIPLINARY SPECIALISTS TO DEFINE PROBLEMS, DETERMINE THEIR PARTICULAR DIMENSIONS, AND DEVELOP POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS THROUGH THE APPLICATION OF SUCH RESEARCH TECHNIQUES AS MATHEMATICAL MODELS AND PROGRAM EVALUATION. THIS PAPER WAS PREPARED FOR THE CONFERENCE ON STRATEGIES FOR EDUCATIONAL CHANGE (WASHINGTON, D.C., NOVEMBER 8-10, 1965). (JK)
