Education and Adaptive Capacity.
Fullan, Michael
The role of education in social change increases as more emphasis is put on planned change. One major aspect of this emphasis is the role of education as a change agent. Using a sample of 2,500 Canadian industrial workers, this presentation examines the relationship between amount and type of education, and types of general or work-related orientations to change. The influence of education was sorted out from other social class components by focusing on a population relatively homogeneous in social characteristics -- manual workers from only six different industries. The propositions tested are that education is positively related to social change orientation and that education is negatively related to the acceptance of social change costs. (Author)
