An Agenda for Research in Education through 1987.
This study proposed to establish priorities for educational research into specific issue areas over the next 5 years in Ontario (Canada). Structured face-to-face interviews were conducted with 104 selected individuals representing different areas of education, including the universities, faculties of education, school board officials, federations, trustees, organized labor, employers, government and nongovernment agencies, and others. The conclusions drawn indicate that priority should be given to: (1) the application of information technology in education; (2) a longitudinal study of students, including identifiable subpopulations, as they proceed through the educational system, to ascertain the effects and utility of programs and methods; and (3) the operation of the postsecondary sector, including questions of purpose, governance, financing, and accessibility. Within or in addition to the above, emphasis is warranted on questions of curriculum and instructional effectiveness, including the utilization of staff, transition to work, and continuing education. Data are presented in appendixes, as are lists of interview questions, potential research priorities, and respondents to the study. (Author/FWR)
