Program Development: Identification and Formulation of Desirable Educational Goals.
Goodlad, John I.
In this speech, the author suggests that the success of public schools depends heavily on commitment to and large-scale agreement on educational goals. He examines the difficulty in creating rational programs to carry out specific behavioral goals and the more remote ends usually stated for educational systems. The author then discusses the difficulty in getting goals formulated on an ideological base through the political structure, the degree of centralization, and the problem of who should make the decisions regarding an educational program. The roles of parents, children, and educators in the educational planning process are discussed. (Author/DN)
