Planning for Educational Development.
Sanders, Donald P.
Planning for development in education is a process which requires fundamental changes in the world view, attitudes, knowledge, and skills of people. To satisfy future requirements for educated persons, the education system must be viewed as an instrument for the attainment of human goals, and planning must determine how many persons must learn what and how well. Because the existing system will constrain both the targets set and the direction of future changes in the system itself, the first step in planning is an assessment of this system. Assessment includes a "mapping" of the education system on a disaggregated basis with a break-down into operationally useful divisions. Trends in influence of private institutions must be anticipated since these are less manageable from the public sphere. Complete data in such relevant categories as capacity, efficiency, effectiveness, and cost are to be gathered. Targets are set and are linked to specific educational institutions by working backward from the targets to the inputs required. Limited resources will require that priorities be established among the targets. (DE)
