THE RE-EDUCATION OF PERSONS IN THEIR HUMAN RELATIONSHIPS.
BENNE, KENNETH D.
SINCE MAN IS BOTH A COMMUNITY ANIMAL AND AT LEAST POTENTIALLY A RATIONAL ANIMAL, EDUCATORS SHOULD USE A HUMAN RELATIONS APPROACH WHICH TREATS THE PROBLEMS OF COMMUNITY LIFE AND OF RATIONALITY AND IRRATIONALITY TOGETHER. THEY MUST ATTEMPT TO REALIZE EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION ACROSS BARRIERS OF NATIONALITY, CLASS, AND SPECIALIZATION AND TO CONNECT RESOURCES WITH PRACTICAL LIFE. THEY MUST BUILD GROUPS WITH MEMBERSHIP DRAWN ACROSS MAJOR LINES OF DIVISIONS IN SOCIETY. THEY MUST ENGAGE IN COOPERATIVE INQUIRY INTO AREAS OF EXPERIENCE WHICH ARE CONFUSED AND PROBLEMATIC. CROSS-CULTURAL GROUPS MUST DEVELOP STANDARDS SUPPORTING INDIVIDUAL VARIETY AS A RESOURCE. LOCAL COMMUNITY LIFE MUST BE PLANNED AND REPLANNED IN RELATION TO CHANGING PATTERNS OF PRODUCTION, COMMUNICATION, AND SOCIAL CONTROL. THIS DOCUMENT IS INCLUDED IN EDUCATION FOR TRAGEDY, BY KENNETH D. BEENE, WHICH IS AVAILABLE FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF KENTUCKY PRESS, LEXINGTON. IT ALSO APPEARED IN ADULT EDUCATION, VOLUME 8, NUMBER 3, SPRING 1958. (RT)
