Cooperation, Independence, Mental Agility: Some Aspects of Preparedness for the Future As An Educational Objective. Educational and Psychological Interactions, Number 36, June 1971.
Research is currently underway at the Malmo School of Education dealing with selected aspects of educational objectives in compulsory school at the "gymnasium" and post-"gymnasium" levels. The main thesis is that these schools prepare students with knowledge and specific skills but fail to equip the student with more general skills and attitudes which he will need in a rapidly changing society. Three aspects of this problem are presently being conducted as research projects at the Malmo School of Education: (1) social development and training in the comprehensive school; (2) creativity; and, (3) student democracy--co-planning at different educational levels. A brief theoretical base for the research is given as well as research methods used. The reader is referred to other documents for more detailed summaries and conclusions of this research. (SB)
