SUPERVISION--EDUCATION AS A VEHICLE OF SOCIAL CHANGE.
CREASON, FRANK; MALLAN, JOHN T.
THIS DOCUMENT DISCUSSES THE POTENTIALS OF EDUCATION AS A VEHICLE FOR SOCIAL CHANGE. IT SUGGESTS THAT EDUCATION IS A FORM OF MANIPULATION, SINCE IT ANTICIPATES A CHANGE IN INDIVIDUAL BEHAVIOR, WITH SUCH A CHANGE NECESSARILY HAVING SOCIAL CONSEQUENCES. THE AUTHORS FURTHER STATE THAT SINCE FORMAL EDUCATION IS SUPPORTED BY PUBLIC FUNDS, IT THEREBY JUSTIFIES ITS INEVITABLE IMPACT ON SOCIETY. THE AUTHORS BELIEVE THAT FOR THESE REASONS, EDUCATION MUST MANIFEST ITS POSITION AS A SOCIAL DETERMINANT IN THE CURRICULUM. SUCH A CURRICULUM IS OUTLINED BY THE AUTHORS, WHO EMPHASIZE THE ACQUISITION OF SOCIETAL VALUES AND CONCEPTS. (JM)
