Inservice Education: Priority for the '80s.
This publication, part of the Professional Development series, presents an analysis of present and future needs for developing innovative approaches to professional staff development. Forces that have compelled fresh approaches for inservice program designs include: (1) equal education for women and minorities; (2) social and economic forces; (3) the knowledge explosion; and (4) declining enrollments. State and federal governments have an obligation to provide long neglected leadership and financial support for inservice programs. Issues for educational personnel and the community are discussed.
