A PHILOSOPHER LOOKS AT THE CURRENT VALUES AND CHANGING NEEDS OF YOUTH. FINAL DRAFT.
BRAMELD, THEODORE
THE MAJOR PRESMISES OF EDUCATION AND OTHER ENTERPRISES, WHICH ARE OFTEN NOT ARTICULATED, CONCERN THE PROBLEM OF THE MEANING, SOURCE AND IMPACT OF VALUES. EXAMPLES OF VALUE CONFLICT AND CONFUSION ARE NATIONALISM VERSUS INTERNATIONALISM, RELIGION IN THE CURRICULUM, AND SEX VALUES IN EDUCATION. THE PROPOSED AGENDA FOR THE ENTIRE EDUCATIVE PROCESS, INCLUDING ADULT EDUCATION AND EDUCATION TAKING PLACE OUTSIDE SCHOOL SETTINGS, CENTERS ON 1) FACING THE CONTROVERSIAL (DEALING WITH ALL VALUES), 2) SEEKING NORMATIVE CONSENSUS (BASED ON THE DESCRIPTIVE STUDIES OF VALUES), 3) HELPING YOUTH MOVE TOWARD SOCIAL, SELF REALIZATION (MAXIMIZING INDIVIDUAL POTENTIAL IN RELATIONSHIP TO MANKIND AS A WHOLE), 4) OVERHAULING THE CURRICULUM (BASED ON MAN IN HIS CULTURE), 5) USING INVOLVEMENT AS METHODOLOGY (ACTIVE PARTICIPATION IN PLANNING AND EXPERIENCING), AND 6) TEACHING THE PHILOSOPHY OF VALUES. REACTIONS TO THE PRESENTATION ARE GIVEN. THIS SPEECH WAS PRESENTED AT THE CONFERENCE ON YOUTH (MERIDEN, CONN., APRIL 26-27, 1966). (JH)
