Towards the 1980s: Papers Presented at the BACIE Annual Conference at Trinity College, Cambridge, September 1968.
British Association for Commercial and Industrial Education, London (England).
The annual conference of the British Association for Commercial and Industrial Education (BACIE), held at Trinity College, Cambridge, England, in September 1968, was devoted to educational objectives for England for the 1980's. The three speeches presented were, "The Objectives of Society" (Sir Herbert Butterfield), "Industry in the 1980's (G.A.H. Cadbury), and "Setting Educational Objectives for the 1980's" (J. Vaizey). Butterfield dealt with democracy and education. Cadbury discussed various economic and population trends and related them to needs for training and education. Vaizey examined certain trends which influence educational policy and practice: school leaving age, the teacher shortage, the growth in size of the sixth form, student ferment, the mechanization of training, and the probable impact of the Industrial Training Act.
