Three Education Task Force Papers Prepared for the White House Conference on Youth.
Martin, Warren Bryan; And Others
The first paper presented in this publication is "The Relevance of Present Educational Systems" by Warren Bryan Martin. The paper argues that present educational systems are not relevant for the future because they are oriented to the past. It examines: youth perspective on relevance; alternative perspectives of institutional and individual relevance of educational systems; the process of institutional change; the movement from reform to transformation; alternative models for the university of the future; and consequences of both existing and alternative models. The second paper, "Student Participation in Governance," by Harold L. Hodgkinson discusses: the pros and cons of student participation in high school and university governance; the changes that have taken place over the past 10 years, some of the consequences of increased student participation; and different models of student participation. The last paper, "Access and Accommodation in Higher Education," by K. Patricia Cross deals with: the changing philosophies of access; the shift in emphasis from access in the 1960's to accommodation in the 1970's; the limitations of existing educational models; new models of education; and recommendations for policies and programs to institute new educational models, including projections of the effects upon youth and society if the new models are not developed.
