Man's Changing Values and a World Culture--New Directions and New Emphases for Educational Programs. A Report on the 1971 Phi Delta Kappa Conference on World Education (Glassboro, New Jersey, May 8, 1971).
Phi Delta Kappa, Glassboro, NJ.
Proceedings of the 1971 Phi Delta Kappa Conference on World Education are contained in this volume. Attendees of the one-day conference consisted of university, college, and public school faculty members, students, and community representatives in Eastern Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Also a number of individuals representing other countries were present. Specific objectives of the conference were to: 1) examine the value of our changing world; 2) recognize the growing need for a world culture; 3) see how our changing values help or hinder a world culture; and 4) try to find new directions for existing educational programs. In achieving its objectives, the conference concluded that there are many indications of a world culture; a world educational program can affect the entire value system of mankind; and there is a need for a world culture and an urgency of finding solutions to pressing problems. In addition to preliminaries and overview, the keynote address and five panel presentations on the major theme of changing values and a world culture are followed by five suggested workshop presentations on new directions and emphases for educational programs. A section on conference activity highlights and a miscellany section conclude the volume. (SJM)
