Journey for Relevance. Industry and Education Study No. 3.
Filep, Robert T.; Sales, T. Bradford
During the decade of the seventies many changes in education will occur which will affect students, teachers, and administrators as well as the curriculum. To review some of the innovative ways selected schools are already changing their programs in an effort to be more relevant, a pilot visit was made by 81 businessmen and educators to five schools across the country. The visit, coordinated by the Northern California Industry-Educational Council, sought to provide an overview of educational innovations and to provide a basis for evaluating these new approaches. Many participants complained of the tight schedule and the large size of the group but still found the trip to be valuable from the standpoint of the dialogue which took place. Also the travelers perceived how certain approaches could be adapted for their communities. Recommendations for future trips of this nature emphasize the need for pre-planning activities.
