Education Confronts the Energy Dilemma. Proceedings of the Annual Conference of the Council for Educational Development and Research (6th, Washington, D.C. June 22-24, 1977).
Council for Educational Development and Research, Washington, DC.
In June of 1977, the Council for Educational Development and Research held its sixth annual conference to examine and discuss the role of education in the energy dilemma. This publication contains the proceedings of that conference. The 300 conference participants heard addresses and panel discussions which examined nearly the whole energy education task. Speeches or discussions from each of the 13 sessions are presented in this publication. Titles, as an indicator of content, include: (1) The Energy Agenda at the Office of Education; (2) Energy Resources: Scenarios for the Future; (3) The Moral Dilemma of Energy Education; (4) Constraints Influencing Education's Role; (5) Politics of Energy Education; (6) Confronting the Energy Dilemma; (7) The Meaning of Scarcity; (8) The Impact of the Carter Energy Program on American Schools; and (9) Reactions to the Conference. In general, it was perceived that the pressing energy problems of today may dramatically alter the values and life styles of future Americans and that not only does education need to prepare people for coping with the energy problems, but also with the probable social changes resulting from those problems.
