PLANNING EDUCATION TODAY FOR TOMORROW.
HIRSCH, WERNER Z.
IN THREE AREAS OF RESPONSIBILITY--POLICY CONSIDERATION, PROGRAM FORMULATION, AND PROGRAM ADMINISTRATION--EDUCATIONAL PLANNERS ARE RELATIVELY UNPREPARED TO MAKE DECISIONS AFFECTING URBAN EDUCATION IN BOTH THE IMMEDIATE AND THE DISTANT FUTURE. THESE THREE FUNDAMENTAL RESPONSIBILITIES INVOLVE IDENTIFYING EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES, OPPORTUNITIES, AND PROBLEMS AND SOLUTIONS, FORMULATING EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS TO MEET THE NEEDS THAT HAVE BEEN RECOGNIZED, AND EFFECTIVELY ADMINISTERING THE RESULTANT PROGRAMS. THE ESTABLISHMENT OF A METROPOLITAN EDUCATION OUTLOOK STATION IS PROPOSED AS AN INTER-INSTITUTIONAL PLANNING CENTER TO OFFER LOCAL UNITS UNIFIED INFORMATION AND A COMMON SOURCE OF EXPERT ADVICE. VARIOUS WAYS TO PLAN AND UTILIZE SUCH A FACILITY ARE OUTLINED, INCLUDING SIMULATION TECHNIQUES, BENEFIT-COST ANALYSIS, AND PROGRAM BUDGETING. POTENTIAL PROBLEMS WHICH SUCH A FACILITY COULD HELP TO SOLVE INCLUDE TIME-ENERGY EXPENDITURE FOR THE INCREASING PROPORTION OF OLDER ADULTS, POOR UTILIZATION OF INTELLECTUAL TALENT, THE BEST USE OF COMPUTERIZED INFORMATION SYSTEMS, AND VOCATIONAL TRAINING FOR THE TECHNOLOGICALLY DISPLACED WORKER. THIS ARTICLE APPEARED IN "URBAN AFFAIRS QUARTERLY," VOLUME II, NUMBER 1, SEPTEMBER, 1966. (JK)
