Imaging Alternative Future School Organizations.
Popper, Samuel H., Ed.
This publication presents the proceedings of the University of Minnesota UCEA Career Development Seminar on alternative school organization for the future. Participants addressed themselves to how both universities and public school systems must adapt to changing social aspirations if they are to remain effective. This entails education administrators learning how to anticipate future events and to set goals beyond the immediate context. Papers were read, reaction panels responded, and group discussion ensued on the three areas of imaging, forecasting methodologies, and futurology in planning. Seven major papers presented include: (1) "Alternative Futures for the American Educational System" by Michael Marien, (2) "Imaging Future Organization in Higher Education" by Vaughn E. Huckfeldt, (3) "Imaging Future Value Systems: Paradigms and Paradoxes" by Ian H. Wilson, (4) "Social Indicators and Social Forecasting" by Denis F. Johnston, (5) "Humanistic vs. Technocratic Methods of Forecasting" by Stuart A. Sandow, (6) "Alternative Strategies of Program Adaptation Within the Future Time Frame of the Seventies" by Jack A. Culbertson, and (7) "Social Indicators in Future Policy Formulation" by Walter F. Mondale. (Author/DE)
