The Real World of the Public Schools.
Broudy, Harry S.
The reconciliation of the various educational schools of thought to the accommodation of the fact that the United States is a technological nation will do much to further the definition of firm national educational goals. Though the "new humanists" have made multiple demands upon the system during the sixties, they only represent a maze of inconsistent motive and anomalous solutions to the most pressing problems of the nation. The pluralistic nature of the school system, combined with ambiguous national goals is a self-defeating entity. Only when coordination of contributions can be made can the system function properly. Ironically the impetus for this coordination and the subsequent liberalizing Force has been the U.S. Office of Education. The new wave of educational reform will be directed toward teachers at all levels who will incorporate strict professional standards into all modes of instruction and classroom climates. Professional accountability, both fiduciary and behaviorally, will also be a dominant force in the new way for public schools. (MC)
