Education, Change and Society.
Karmel, Peter, Ed.
The conference papers in this publication focus on the interrelationship between change in the education sector and change in the wider society. The papers were generated by an invitational conference held in 1980 to mark the golden jubilee year of the Australian Council for Educational Research. While many of the papers have an Australian orientation, the issues which they raise are relevant to most modern societies experiencing a period of rapid economic, political, and social change. The contributors include Australian, European, and North American scholars as well as Australians prominent in the fields of industry and trade unionism. The first two sections of the publication contain background papers and reaction statements to them. Topics include theoretical assumptions in the recent development of Australian education; sociological, political, demographic, and economic perspectives of Australian society in change; and changing educational emphases for the 1980s. The third section contains the papers presented at the conference. Topics discussed include social influences on British education, the future of formal education, the educational consequences of youth unemployment, education for a complete life, and the implications of societal change for educational research and curriculum. A list of conference participants is included. The publication concludes with an index. (RM)
