"Futures": A New and Needed Literature for National and International Planning in Continuing Education.
Rivera, William M.
The futures of continuing education are discussed from the standpoint of educational planning for the future. Techniques that are being used in formulating futures environments are described, and a model of Federal policy options/goals in post-secondary education in the years 1970-85 is presented as a cross-impact matrix (Annex I). A scenario of the futures of the field of education, emphasizing out-of-school educational programs, is presented as Annex II. This scenario consists of statements of precepts and concepts concerning education, a statement of general conviction concerning education, a statement of general need, a statement of specific need, a newsworthy event regarding need, a shift of social value, a statement of goal, a newsworthy event regarding program, and a statement of personal values. A bibliography of futures literature is included. (DB)
