Education's Financial Dilemma: Planning for Change or Reacting to Crisis.
Nyquist, Ewald B.
This speech outlines the transformation of traditional educational functions and emphasizes that establishing clear educational purposes, goals, and priorities and planning for reform and change are needs equally imperative as financial needs. The author suggests reforms for the socialization and the basic educational functions of schools, discusses ways of financing higher education, suggests such reforms for higher education as that of shortening the time required to obtain baccalaureate and professional degrees, and calls for greater interinstitutional cooperation. The author also discusses the implications of the Serrano vs. Priest equal educational opportunity case and suggests that educators, as well as State and local government officials, should take the initiative for school reform away from the courts. The speech concludes on the note that a national reappraisal of education and of the roles of the schools and colleges is in order. (JF)
