EDUCATION IN THE STATES, A PLANNING CHART BOOK.
National Committee for Support of the Public Schools, Washington, DC.
A CONDENSED VIEW OF EDUCATION IN THE UNITED STATES IS PRESENTED IN 24 CHARTS AND BRIEF EXPLANATIONS UNDER THE HEADINGS--(1) TOWARD A TRILLION-DOLLAR ECONOMY IN 1975, (2) THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING QUALIFIED, (3) EDUCATION IS FOR ALL, AND (4) PLANNING FOR EDUCATION--THE YEARS AHEAD. THE TRILLION-DOLLAR PRODUCTION POTENTIAL IS DEPENDENT UPON TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCES AND EXPANDED EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES. NOT ONLY WILL THE NEW JOBS BE FOR THE HIGHLY SKILLED, ALL JOBS WILL REQUIRE MORE EDUCATION. PROFESSIONAL, TECHNICAL, AND RELATED OCCUPATIONS WILL CONTINUE TO BE THE MOST RAPIDLY GROWING FIELDS. PUBLIC EDUCATION WILL NEED TO PROVIDE A COMPREHENSIVE PROGRAM FOR PERSONS OF ALL AGES AND EDUCATIONAL ATTAINMENT. THE TREND TOWARD URBANIZATION AND THE RESULTING SHIFT IN POPULATION WILL REQUIRE A REEXAMINATION OF THE RURAL-ORIENTED EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM. STATE PLANNING FOR QUALITY EDUCATION SHOULD (1) PROVIDE IMPROVED TECHNIQUES, EQUIPMENT, AND FACILITIES FOR SCHOOLS, (2) SPONSOR RESEARCH ON LEARNING, CURRICULUM, TEACHING MATERIALS, AND TEXTBOOKS, (3) EXPAND EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES, (4) IMPROVE STANDARDS OF TEACHING, (5) MEET MANPOWER NEEDS, AND (6) MODERNIZE VOCATIONAL EDUCATION. ANALYTICAL TOOLS ARE BECOMING AVAILABLE FOR PLANNING EDUCATIONAL SYSTEMS. NEW TECHNIQUES INCLUDE SYSTEMS ANALYSIS, PROGRAM BUDGETING, AND COST-EFFECTIVENESS ANALYSIS. FISCAL EXPERTS ARE STARTING TO LOOK AT EDUCATION AS A PRODUCTION PROCESS, SOMEWHAT ANALOGOUS TO INDUSTRY, HAVING INPUT, PROCESS, AND OUTPUT VARIABLES. PUBLIC EDUCATION EXPENDITURES, INCLUDING MANY PROGRAM IMPROVEMENTS, MAY REACH NEARLY $45 BILLION BY 1970. THIS DOCUMENT IS AVAILABLE FOR $1.00 FROM NATIONAL COMMITTEE FOR SUPPORT OF THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS, 1424 SIXTEENTH STREET, N.W., WASHINGTON, D.C. 20036. (WB)
