The New Approaches to the Planning and Management of Education at the Threshold of the XXI Century.
Onushkin, V. G.
The crisis in education that faces the nations of the world at the end of the 20th century requires not only a new approach to the development of education as a social institution, but also the restructuring of the traditional systems of planning and management of education. The democratization of educational planning is called for, in which a flexible and open system would involve all persons and groups of people with a stake in the system, not just educational administrators and bureaucrats. A new system of educational planning and management must put individuals at its center, not some social or economic problem to be solved at the moment. Education also must be seen in terms of fostering lifelong learning. The problem of illiteracy is examined in detail in terms of educational planning and management. (DB)
