EDUCATION FOR WHATEVER COMES.
RIGBY, AVARD A.
OUR EDUCATIONAL, GOVERNMENTAL, RELIGIOUS, AND COMMUNITY AGENCIES ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR PREPARING INDIVIDUALS NOT ONLY FOR A WORLD OF WORK BUT MORE BASICALLY FOR A WORLD OF RAPID AND DRAMATIC CHANGE. AN 8-STATE COOPERATIVE PROJECT CALLED "DESIGNING EDUCATION FOR THE FUTURE" HAS MADE AN EFFORT TO PREDICT CHANGES WHICH SOCIETY WILL EXPERIENCE BY THE YEAR 1980 AND RELATE THESE CHANGES TO THE EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM. RESULTS INDICATE THAT UNLESS OUR EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM IS MARKEDLY UPDATED, MASSIVE PROBLEMS LOOM IN THE NEAR FUTURE. IT IS REASONABLE TO CONCLUDE THAT--(1) THE EDUCATOR'S PERSONAL ATTITUDE RATHER THAN THE METHODS HE EMPLOYS HAS THE LARGER IMPACT ON THE STUDENT, (2) THE QUALITY OF EDUCATION MUST BE STRENGTHENED AND MADE MORE PERSONAL, (3) EMOTIONAL REACTION MUST BE REPLACED BY CRITICAL THINKING ON THE PART OF FUTURE STUDENTS, (4) CREATIVE TEACHING MUST BE ENCOURAGED IF STUDENTS ARE TO BE PREPARED FOR A WORLD IN WHICH KNOWLEDGE WILL HAVE ADVANCED TO LEVELS WE CANNOT NOW PREDICT, AND (5) THE TRAINING OF LEADERS MUST BECOME THE BASIC STRATEGY IN THE PREPARATION OF YOUTH FOR WHATEVER MAY COME. THIS SPEECH WAS DELIVERED AT THE STATE 4-H LEADERS SCHOOL (UTAH STATE UNIVERSITY, LOGAN, MARCH 18, 1968). (DA)
