Silberman, Harry F.
This paper summarizes the current status of the National Institute of Education (NIE) plans for programs and organization as of the beginning of the 1973 fiscal year. The author considers the purpose of NIE as outlined in the NIE enabling legislation, lists the goals of education, and examines the problems that arise in trying to achieve those goals. Abstracts of specific NIE programs to address educational problems are presented in the areas of information collection and analysis, resource development, educational systems, and directed programs. Some of the programs are described, including home-based education, employer-based education, community participation, post-secondary education, student self direction, increasing the productivity of education, developing new measures for education, and research and development on the implementation of successful NIE programs. The document concludes with a chart and a description of the NIE organizational structure. The functions of the major organizational components are described. (Author/DN)
