On Educational Change.
An educational reformer describes his views and his mode of analysis in his quest to deal with educational change. He suggests that, to survive in educational and political change, it is necessary to have what may be thought of as a map of the territory, together with some notion of the desirable directions and the available paths. He links the discussion of educational change to past, present, and future changes in society as a whole. He considers the historical basis underlying the present educational structure and considers directions in which that structure has been moving. The author suggests that the educational matrix--the structure supportive of learning--consists of time, space, subject matter, and social and administrative organization. He describes each of these elements and then classifies current educational alternatives in terms of the variations they make in one or more of the four elements of the matrix. The document concludes by examining what the patterns of education will be in the future and what the relationship between society and the schools will be. (Author/DN)
