A Man for Tomorrow's World.
Leeper, Robert R., Ed.
The first part of this publication is given over to three major papers that emphasize the present and urge consideration of the problems and challenges of man's future. In "Education for Genuine Community," Samuel D. Proctor emphasizes the need to strive for a new momentum toward community as a possible solution to societal problems. Theodore Roszak, in "Educating Contra Naturam," argues for the conception and implementation of new understandings of the realities of the institution of organized education. Alexander Frazier reviews the quest of a generation of school people for an instructional program that might be conceived as adequate for "the grand curriculum" that is life itself, in "Here and Now: Points of Decision in the Quest for a New Curriculum." The second part of the publication consists of two papers adopted for study and action at the 1969 and 1970 ASCD conferences and which represent official statements of that organization -- "The Generation of New Understandings: a Program of Study and Action" and "The Quality of Life and Society in the United States."
