Trends in Federal Programs for the 70's.
Achilles, Charles M.
The early 70's will see educational programs in transition as the Nixon administration attempts to redesign Health, Education, and Welfare. The program thrust is beginning to become apparent in 1970. Local educators need to take into strict account the fact that education can no longer do the job alone. Educators must use other social agencies and must refine a partnership with the private sector to provide youngsters with realistic educational opportunities. This will be difficult in regions of the South where strong political influence has always pervaded education. As education must broaden its base and develop sources of support in other sectors of the community, it will erode the power base of the school superintendent and his traditional hold over decisions in education. Educators must develop innovative approaches to utilization of the total resource allocation available to them; the classroom must expand into the community. School experiences must relate to real things, and the spirit of discovery must be tied to an analysis of society's needs. Education programs for the 70's will be designed to provide better-trained teachers, new program thrusts, and innovative structures so that education may continue to develop. (LS)
