Education for a Learning Society.
Tempero, Howard E., Ed.
The essays contained in this booklet are 1) "Education for a 'Learning Society': The Challenge" by Ernest Bayles in which he calls for focus on learning to live, developing skills of reflection and judgment applicable to vital issues, and reflective teaching; 2) "Teacher Education in a Learning Society" in which David Turney demands teacher education programs more deeply committed to continuous professional learning for teachers, and greater freedom, excitement, and imagination in that learning; 3) "Empirical Evidence of the Experimental Mind in Education" by Bob Burton Brown which points out that we encounter a belief vs practices dilemma and a schism between fundamental beliefs and educational beliefs; 4) "Old Wine in New Bottles" in which C. Benjamin Cox foresees a more significant role for teachers in the educational growth of students, the use of specialists, learning evaluation, and curricula characterized by student-oriented inquiry; 5) "Reform from Within" by William Clark Trow which assails panacea proposals and argues for multi-variable innovation making use of modern tools; 6) "The Learning Society: The Other Side of the Coin" in which Frederick C. Neff attacks the false dichotomy of work and learning and calls for utilization of knowledge in the service of humane ends; 7) "Institutional Conditions for the Learning Society" by Robert E. Mason which asserts that schools should be orderly places since order is characteristic of both intellectual and moral discipline. (JS)
