EDUCATIONAL IMPLICATIONS OF TECHNOLOGICAL CHANGE.
VENN, GRANT
THE RAPID TECHNOLOGICAL CHANGE TAKING PLACE IN THE UNITED STATES IS ESTABLISHING A NEW RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN MAN, EDUCATION, AND WORK IN WHICH IT IS BECOMING NECESSARY FOR ALL MEN TO OBTAIN AN EDUCATION IN ORDER TO WORK. THE IMPLICATIONS FOR EDUCATION CONCERN THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE TALENTS AND ABILITIES OF EVERY PERSON, AND THE DEVELOPMENT OF MANPOWER SKILLS NEEDED TO MEET THE NEW REQUIREMENTS OF A TECHNOLOGICAL AGE. EDUCATION MUST PROVIDE A FUNCTIONAL LITERACY FOR EVERY CHILD AND DEVELOP ATTITUDES TOWARD WORK IN WHICH EDUCATION IS A RESPECTED FACTOR. FOR THOSE STUDENTS WITH SPECIAL NEEDS, EDUCATION MUST DEVELOP SPECIAL PROGRAMS THAT PROVIDE SALEABLE JOB SKILLS. OPPORTUNITIES MUST BE EXTENDED FOR POST-HIGH SCHOOL EDUCATION IN THE CONTINUING REEDUCATION PROCESS NECESSARY FOR ADJUSTMENT TO TECHNOLOGICAL CHANGE. THE NECESSITY OF EXPERIMENTATION, RESEARCH, AND FLEXIBLE APPROACHES TO THE EDUCATION AND OCCUPATIONAL PREPARATION OF ALL PEOPLE ARE DEMANDED BY TECHNOLOGICAL CHANGE. (DK)
