The Inside-Outside School, A Design for International Education.
Lawrence, Barbara Jean
This study developed basic guidelines for establishing systems of lifelong continuing education based on the concept that different cultures and subcultures make demands on their members, and that these demands or developmental tasks change from time to time. This approach, the "Inside-Outside School," would promote self-directed intellectual activity and social progress, especially in developing nations, by incorporating the best features of the "Outside School" (the social milieu plus mass media) with discussion, lectures, and other elements of formal education. Numerous philosophical, psychological, and sociological objectives would entail liberating minds toward wisdom through certain attitude and behavior changes; enlarging knowledge and understanding by such means as problem solving, literacy or basic general education, and language study; and expanding communication skills through understanding, development of moral values, and constructive group, civic, and cultural participation. Steps in staffing, use of audiovisual aids, and other phases of implementation were outlined. (ly)
