The Future--A Report Prepared for Project ANNA.
An assessment of the future Native Alaskan educational program is presented, showing a complexity of major social trends, technical developments, and accumulating evaluative and projective data that are profoundly challenging the existing educational structures and rationales. The quantity of significant concerns appears endless, ranging from record keeping to revenue sharing. Therefore, in this report discussion of national issues is limited to those which should be of vital concern to Alaska Native programs, while at the same time including those major Alaskan factors that are unique to the situation. An overview of the questions and issues relative to the topic points to 4 areas of educational concern--function, approach, control, and economics. The approaches in education are discussed. All aspects of the traditional approaches to schooling are being challenged for a myriad of valid, and some less than valid reasons--some of the more valid reasons seem to be the information explosion, learning process advancements, and rapid societal changes. In conclusion, the final task would be the evaluation of existing and planned educational approaches in the light of: (1) What is desirable? (2) What is possible? (3) What is probable or certain?
