Research on Goals as a Means of Establishing Policy Agendas for That Public Service Called "Education".
Hill, Paul T.
This paper introduces a National Institute of Education (NIE) project that is developing new methods for assessing layman's goals for education. The project also compares those goals with the goals of the professional educators. After elaborating the rationale that has guided NIE's studies of education goals, the paper describes the assumptions and procedures that make NIE's studies unique. Part one sets the context for the research by discussing the problem of tailoring public services in general (and education in particular) to achieve the goals which their clientele expect. Part two presents the framework for the research. Because of the preliminary nature of this study, its scope is limited to one site (Albuquerque, New Mexico) and to the secondary level of education. Preliminary findings indicate that it is possible to obtain valid and complete information about goals for education, even from very unsophisticated respondents. (Author/DN)
