State Leadership in Education in the 1970's: Significant Recent and Prospective Changes in Society that Have Important Implications for the States.
Morphet, Edgar L.
This report discusses the State role in providing education for its citizens in a changing society. The author suggests that, although the idea of local responsibility for education is still valid, States should be responsible for developing adequate educational policies for local systems to implement. The report also suggests that the States, in cooperation with citizens, must provide effective planning for improvement of education. Societal changes that the author sees are (1) an interest in consumerism and environment, (2) a trend to urbanization, and (3) a transition from a complacent to a questioning society. (JF)
