Holland, Thomas R., Ed; Lee, Catherine M., Ed.
This report of the Fifth National Conference of the Tri-University Project is introduced by Paul Olson and contains speeches by (1) Virgil E. Boyd, who presents Chrysler Corporation's job-oriented educational program, (2) Don Davies, who calls for the equilization, individualization, and humanization of education, (3) Donald H. Smith, who explains the educational significance of the "street"--its culture, influence, and importance--in the lives of inner-city children, (4) Jerome S. Bruner, who discusses the "divisive dichotomies" present in education--e.g., old versus young, society versus individual, and order versus innovation, (5) Kenneth Boulding, who relates the economic process to education, and (6) Wayne Booth, who challenges the profession to educate Americans to be critical thinkers. Materials include responses to the six speeches, and the reports and transcriptions of committee discussions on such topics as community control, inner-city education, bilingual education in literature and composition, implementation of new ideas and programs, and three of education's specific regional problems, (the Mexican-American in the Southwest, integration in the South, and conservatism in Appalachia).
