Three Approaches to Educational Planning. A Review and Appraisal of the Demand-for-Places, Manpower-Requirements, and Rate-of-Return Approaches to Educational Planning.
Webster, Maureen M.
This report seeks to clarify the advantages and disadvantages of three approaches to educational planning, and suggests that an eclectic approach is necessary to deal successfully with the problems and prospects of future planning. Each approach is examined to determine its methodology, its alleged shortcomings, and its application in selected planning situations. The approaches are then reviewed to synthesize a more adequate and comprehensive approach to planning. It is concluded that the three approaches should be viewed as complementary rather than as discrete alternatives, but that, even when taken together, they fail to constitute an adequate basis for planning. Much empirical research remains to be done to develop methodologies and theoretical bases for educational planning.
