Designing Education for the Future: Rationale, Procedures and Appraisal. Final Report and External Evaluation.
Morphet, Edgar L., Ed.; Jesser, David L., Ed.
The major purpose of the Title V program, Designing Education for the Future, is to assist educators and lay citizens in the eight participating States in devising a program of educational improvement. This report by the project director presents information on educational changes covered by the program and builds a rationale for effecting these changes. The State programs were organized separately, although each State appointed a coordinator and selected an advisory committee. Statements on educational finance and the need for preparing educators for the future are included, as are some specific procedures and accomplishments of projects in Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming. The major accomplishment was the breakdown of regional bias and the discovery of mutual strengths. An external evaluation of the project completes the report. The paper concludes that prospects for continued improvement in educational quality lie with the ability of State and local leadership to effect educational change, especially through comprehensive planning and implementation.
