The Dynamics of Educational Institutions.
Fey, Willard R.; Knight, John E.
Educational institutions, particularly universities, are facing increasing financial pressures, doubts about their relevance, continuing student violence, over-crowding, and the chaos of a knowledge explosion. These interrelated dynamic problems result from the way the educational system is organized and operated. The system's common ways of dealing with such problems often aggravate, not resolve, the conditions. A preliminary industrial dynamics analysis of the educational system suggests that redirected research programs focus on lifelong individual self-teaching, and charges that cover costs may in time eliminate these current educational problems. Such changes may also encourage greater individual development and prevent educational obsolescence. (Author)
