THE FRUSTRATIONS OF PROGRESS.
HOWE, HAROLD, II
MANY CHANGES HAVE BEEN EFFECTED IN THE POSTURE, PURPOSES, AND PROGRAMS OF AMERICAN PUBLIC EDUCATION DURING THE LAST 15 YEARS. NEVERTHELESS, THERE ARE STILL MANY PERPLEXING PROBLEMS TO BE SOLVED. WHAT IS NEEDED IS A PRACTICAL PROGRAM ADVANCED BY POSITIVE LEADERSHIP. SIX RECOMMENDATIONS FOR A PROGRESSIVE AGENDA IN EDUCATION WHICH DEMAND ATTENTION FROM EVERY SCHOOL ARE--(1) RENEWED EMPHASIS ON PRESCHOOL EDUCATION, (2) CONCENTRATED ATTENTION ON REDUCING THE ISOLATION OF THE SCHOOLS, (3) COORDINATED WORK-STUDY PROGRAMS FOR JUNIOR AND SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS, (4) PRESERVICE AND INSERVICE TEACHER TRAINING WITH EMPHASIS ON SPECIAL PROGRAMS FOR INNER-CITY SCHOOLS, (5) INCREASED EMPHASIS ON INDIVIDUALIZED INSTRUCTION AND SELF-DIRECTED LEARNING, AND (6) NEW EFFORTS DESIGNED TO ACHIEVE RACIAL INTEGRATION. THIS PAPER IS AN ADDRESS PRESENTED BEFORE THE ANNUAL CONFERENCE OF THE AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS (ATLANTIC CITY, NEW JERSEY, FEBRUARY 21, 1968). (MM)
