The purpose of this paper is to provide an introduction to the field of educational futures. It describes a framework for educational futures that moves from the understanding of global futures data to action planning for dealing with the understanding those data have for education. The paper discusses the future of government, life styles, and energy and food production. It also describes two possible scenarios for the future of education in the United States, one pessimistic and one optimistic. Concluding chapters offer implications and forecasts for schools and recommendations for an educational futures agenda. (Author/LD)
