Alternative Educational Futures in the United States and in Europe: Methods, Issues and Policy Relevance.
Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, Paris (France). Centre for Educational Research and Innovation.
This book contains four papers by noted educational planning experts that, together, cover practically all the implications of undertaking 'futurological' studies in education. Louis Emmery, in his "Alternative Educational Futures and Educational Policy-Planning," summarizes the three papers that comprise the remainder of the document and stresses the importance of viewing alternative educational futures in the context of policy planning or "second generation" educational planning. Torsten Husen then describes three major purposes for exploring alternative educational futures. In the third paper, Warren Ziegler develops a taxonomy consisting of five models, which purports to synthesize the current practice of American educational planning as it views the future. Finally, Willis Harman focuses on alternative future states of American society that represent, in some sense, alternative dominant belief and value systems. (Author/JH)
