The First Five-Year Plan for Population Education with a Bibliography for Population Center Libraries.
Burleson, David
Following a brief description of population control in the last 10 years, this paper outlines a Five Year Plan for population education. Four prerequisites to the Plan are presented: a) traditional approaches must be accommodated or bypassed, b) new subject matter must be introduced at the expense of current content, c) value spheres must be included, and d) personnel must be developed to train teachers and teacher educators in this field. The development of the Plan is reported as including the introduction of courses into urban, suburban, rural, and ghetto schools; introduction of in-service courses into community colleges and technical institutions; and proposed emphasis on in-state programs. A 10-item annotated bibliography on population education ends the narrative portion of the report. Appendix I presents a 12-page bibliography; Appendix II, a multidisciplinary approach to population education; Appendix III, a strategy for population education with discussions on needs, current status, general strategy, and tasks. Notes on curriculum design, program development, learning resources, academic programs, research, and evaluation of the strategy are also included. (BRB)
