How the American Education System Looks From the Standpoint of Systematic Planning.
Benson, Charles S.
Comparative analysis of educational planning in Pakistan and the United States illustrates the potential of educational planning and the one-sided approach to planning practiced in America. In Pakistan, the centralized government coordinates all planning activities, and educational planning is only one part of an integrated planning program for political, social, and economic needs. In the United States, planning is diffused and fragmented throughout Federal and local governments. In the U.S., little attention is given to longrange planning, and efforts are concentrated in financial accounting. Proper planning in the United States must concern itself with qualitative improvement rather than quantitative expansion. (RA)
