The Education Industry Planning Consultant: An Emerging Role.
Le Baron, Walter Alvin, III
This study defines the role of the education-industry planning consultant. The planning consultant is envisioned as an independent agent who will be concerned with improving the interaction among school districts and the education industry through facilitating the use of comprehensive, long-range planning. He is seen as functioning to provide a common ground among the parties involved in educational planning. Following an introductory chapter, two chapters discuss the background to the problem. Chapter 2 develops the present status of education-industry relationships, and Chapter 3 presents a theory of educational planning. Chapter 4 presents a description of the education-industry planning consultant's role. This chapter includes the reactions of a selected jury of respondents who were asked to predict the value of the role. Chapter 5 summarizes the study and presents recommendations based upon it.
