The Future--Its Challenge and Implications for Public Decision Making. Curriculum, Media & Instruction Occasional Paper No. 5.
Berghofer, Desmond E.
This paper discusses the future of education in relation to school trustees' responsibilities for public decision-making. Trustees should maximize local decision-making as the preferred alternative, the paper says, to try to avoid a depersonalized, highly bureaucratized, future society. Several authors' views of social and educational futures are cited. (Author/LD)
