Student Unrest: Threat or Promise?
Hart, Richard L., Ed.; Saylor, J. Galen, Ed.
Scholars and educators presented manuscripts on student unrest at two conferences sponsored by the ASCD Council of Secondary Education. The following subjects were considered: (1) the relationship between current and past student unrest topics, causes, and methods; (2) the needs, motives, and aspirations of youth in our technological society; (3) the unique characteristics of two groups of disenchanted youth -- those unhappy with second-class citizenship, and those dissatisfied with society's overemphasis on materialism and pragmatism; (4) some promising short-and long-range program proposals for making education relevant for youth; and (5) some promising strategies of conflict intervention and resolution. This booklet embodies nine manuscripts that evolved from the proceedings of the two conferences. (Author/LLR)
