Achievements and Challenges. The HEW Forum Papers. Second Series.
Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, Washington, DC.
The first lecture of this series focuses on the role of today's professor, caught in the middle of two campus revolutions, one of which he is the beneficiary and the other, the target. The second lecture considers the importance of understanding the future in preparing youth for it, and the extent to which the future is knowable. Current projections of alternative futures for our society suggest (1) significant alterations in the ways we carry out instructions, (2) topics providing vehicles for learning, and (3) education as a fundamental value. The third lecture contends that regular governmental institutions have not responded to rapid social change. The fourth is a pragmatic look at some of the essential characteristics of leadership, with particular emphasis on leadership role in an administrative setting. The final lecture is a review of the major accomplishments of this decade in health, education, and welfare, a discussion of remaining problems, and a pin-pointing of future goals over the next decade.
