Calgary Univ. (Alberta). Faculty of Education.
THIS ISSUE OF THE JOURNAL OF EDUCATIONAL THOUGHT CONTAINS FIVE ARTICLES, EACH DEALING WITH QUESTIONS OF EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITY. THE FIRST EXPLORES CHARACTERISTICS, PROBLEMS, AND OPPORTUNITIES INHERENT IN THE CONSTRASTING ROLES OF STUDENTSHIP, AND MEMBERSHIP, AND CALLS FOR A BALANCE BETWEEN THE TWO ROLES. A SECOND ARTICLE POINTS TO THE NEED TO DEVELOP EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS TO SERVE THE DIFFERING NEEDS OF OUR SOCIETY, SO THAT OCCUPATIONAL COMPETENCE DOES NOT ESTABLISH SOCIAL POSITION AND ARROGANCE LEADING TO CLASS CONFLICT. ANOTHER ARTICLE TRACES THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE "CULTURAL DEPRIVATION" CONCEPT, PRESENTING IT AS A CONSERVATIVE AND LARGELY PSYCHOLOGICAL THEORY IN CONTRAST TO A SOCIAL CONCEPT. A FOURTH ARTICLE GIVES ACCOUNT OF RECENT CHANGES IN SCHOOL ORGANIZATION IN WEST GERMANY, ESPECIALLY THOSE WHICH LIBERALIZE ENTRANCE REQUIREMENTS TO GYMNASIUMS AND PROVIDE ALTERNATIVE PATHS TO HIGHER EDUCATION. A FIFTH ARTICLE ADVOCATES THAT EDUCATION ALLOW CHILDREN TO FOLLOW THEIR INDIVIDUAL, NATURAL INCLINATIONS TO INQUIRY RATHER THAN FORCE THEM TO GROW INTO THE IMAGE SET BY THE PRECEDING GENERATION. A BOOKS SECTION CONTAINS TWO REVIEWS. 65 PAGES. (RT)
