Educational Planning in the United States. Symposium on Educational Requirements for the 1970's, an Interdisciplinary Approach (2nd).
Elam, Stanley, Ed.; Swanson, Gordon I., Ed.
Five papers comprise this book of symposium proceedings. Philip Smith, in "Objectives for American Education," theorizes that the U.S. can afford a sophisticated, dedicated profession to run the schools, and that educational leaders must become dedicated or other leaders will replace them. Francis Chase, in "The Status of Educational Planning in the United States," summarizes State and Federal activities and predicts the emergence and widespread adoption of new concepts and new technologies of planning. Kjell Eide, in "The Planning Process," defines planning in general terms, examines its position relative to other administrative functions and the conditions for a successful planning process. William McLure, in "Planning Adjustments in the Educational System," identifies some of the areas where differentiated planning is needed and elements that would constitute the substance of a rational planning design. Andre Daniere, in "Some Theory of Planning for Education," theorizes about planning in general. Each presentation is followed by a roundtable discussion by participants. (Author/MLF)
