The School of the Future -- Now.
Saylor, J. Galen, Ed.
The conference provided the medium within which the views and recommendations of outstanding authorities among teachers, administrators, and college personnel could be formulated and disseminated to the profession concerning what kinds of schools this nation needs for the education of children from two to adulthood. In the first speech, Richard L. Foster analyzes institutional structures, program and curriculum patterns, teaching methods, and human relationships that militate against the full measure of individual development that should characterize the schools. Milly Cowles pictures the kinds of schooling needed for infants; Charles A. Blackman, for later childhood; Donald H. Eichhorn, for the emerging adolescent; and Mark Shedd, for the adolescent and young adult. Jack R. Frymier puts it all together for a total program of education for tomorrow -- ages two to young adulthood. William M. Alexander discusses ways in which school systems should work with their individual communities to bring about the schools of the future and details the processes that will involve all concerned persons in the community in the development of the kinds of schools needed now.
