Statewide Planning for Programs in Education, Alaska State Department of Education.
Alaska State Dept. of Education, Juneau.
The projected changes in society by 1980 and their implications for education, government, and society (as anticipated by the Eight-State Study) form a backdrop for this proposed project of state-wide planning in Alaska. Stress is placed on the development of a strong State Department of Education as an integral part of the concept of creative federalism (a partnership in which federal, state, and local school interests operate as equals, each assuming the responsibility to perform the educational functions that can be most appropriately dealt with at that level). It is projected that through the implementation of a state-wide program of individualized instruction the various agencies of the State Department could be welded into a united force to meet the problems of local school districts and eventually develop a program of total planning and cooperation for local and state agencies.
