THE STRUGGLE FOR CONTROL OF EDUCATION.
COLEMAN, JAMES S.
THIS PAPER EXAMINES THE EMERGING CONFLICT BETWEEN LOCAL AND STATE GOVERNMENTS OR LOCAL AND FEDERAL GOVERNMENTS OVER VARIOUS EDUCATIONAL POLICIES THAT HAVE ARISEN BECAUSE OF THE NUMEROUS AGENCIES WHO ARE BOTH INTERESTED IN AND AFFECTED BY A CHILD'S EDUCATION. THE AUTHOR, AFTER REVIEWING THESE ISSUES, DISCUSSES THE EFFECT THIS CONFLICT WILL HAVE UPON CANADIAN AND UNITED STATES SCHOOLS OF THE FUTURE. THE ISSUES EXAMINED ARE--THE DIFFERENTIAL EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES FOR CHILDREN OF VARYING ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL BACKGROUNDS, THE LOCAL NATIONAL CONFLICT OVER THE ISSUE OF MINORITY RIGHTS, THE FLUCTUATING POSITIONS OF SCHOOLS AS INSTRUMENTS OF SOCIAL CHANGE, AND THE STRUGGLE OVER THE DEVELOPMENT OF UNIFORM EDUCATIONAL STANDARDS. THE AUTHOR POINTS OUT THAT THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT ACTS AS A SUPPLEMENTING AGENT TO THE INDIVIDUAL'S POWER STRUGGLE WHEN THAT POWER IS DEFICIENT AT THE LOCAL LEVEL. USING A HYPOTHETICAL CONTROL SYSTEM, THE AUTHOR ASSESSES THE VALUE OF THE VARYING TYPES AND DEGREES OF NATIONAL AND STATE INTERVENTION INTO LOCAL ISSUES. THIS PAPER WAS PREPARED FOR A "SYMPOSIUM ON SOCIAL POLICY--LOCAL CONTROL OF EDUC.," OCT. 5-7, 1967, COLLEGE OF EDUC., UNIV. OF SASKATCHEWAN. (AF)
