Educational Reform for a Changing Society: Anticipating Tomorrow's Schools.
Rubin, Louis, Ed.
The essays in this book emphasize trends now shaping society that the authors believe will have a profound effect on schools in the decades to come. Topics covered include declining enrollments and increasing educational costs, the changing role of vocational education, government financing for educational quality, the role of busing, politicking skills for school administrators, and the growing importance of the community-based school. Shirley Chisholm and Richard S. Schweiker deal with developing political trends concerning education from their point of view as members of key education committees in the United States Congress. Topics that will affect future schools and educators are discussed by social and educational leaders Robert G. Scanlon, Ralph W. Tyler, Urie Bronfenbrenner, Elise Boulding, and Louis Rubin. R. Buckminster Fuller and Jonas Salk look at education in the congested world of the future from the point of view of the scientific community. Following each essay, Louis Rubin highlights its inherent implications for education and extracts significant research and development issues. (Author/JM)
