The Implications of Social and Economic Changes for Educational Policy in the Next Two Decades--A Pilot Study.
National Planning Association, Washington, DC.
This report summarizes the National Planning Association's pilot study of the implications of economic and social change for educational policy in the next two decades. Research is concentrated on changing manpower needs and on the challenges they are likely to present for designing the educational systems of the 1970's and 1980's. Anticipated changes in career opportunities provide a frame of reference for considering the consequences of rapid technological change, growth in leisure, and the persistence of poverty and discrimination for the options likely to become available in education during the coming decades. Chapter I sets the scope of the report into the analytical context used, while chapters II, III, and IV discuss the challenge to education of changing career opportunities, changing levels of educational attainment, and changing socioeconomic conditions. The educational system's response to socioeconomic change is analyzed in chapter V and is illustrated in chapter VI, which discusses institutional resistances to change in the area of educational technology. Supportive statistical tables are appended. A related document is EA 002 045. (TT)
