Innovation in Education: New Directions for the American School. A Statement on National Policy.
Committee for Economic Development, New York, NY. Research and Policy Committee.
The future of American schools depends in large part on their openness to innovations in instructional patterns, in school organization, in education for teachers and for deprived minorities, and in their use of educational technology. Basic and applied research are needed to determine useful innovation. Cost-benefit and cost-effectiveness analyses are needed to determine its practicality. The goals of instruction must be continually re-examined and revised in light of changing conditions and new possibilities. Educational equipment and new methods in themselves may influence these goals. To stimulate change a national Commission on Research, Innovation, and Evaluation in Education is recommended. Memoranda of comment, reservation, and dissent are appended. (MF)
