Long-Range Policy Planning in Education.
Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, Paris (France).
The first part of this publication contains detailed presentations on the subject of planning in education for Norway, The Netherlands, and the United States; a summary of the educational planning program for 18 OECD countries; a commentary on the substitution of teacher input by "other resources" input; and a description of the Educational Policy and Research Center at Syracuse. This part is followed by a commentary on the various perspectives of the country planning programs, such as some unstated assumptions on which educational planning and research are based, planning in the midst of socio-educational change, and suggestions for possible lines of further development in a country's planning program. The publication concludes with a consideration of the perspectives and methodology of educational planning. Topics examined include the educational problems of a future society, the educational plan as a viable instrument of social policy, and the forecasting of plausible alternative future histories of society. A scenario of alternative futures for the United States between 1970 and the year 2000 and its implications for educational policy is presented. The appendix provides lists of the names and addresses of conference participants. (Author/DN)
