Community Services, 2000 A.D. Forum 40.
Hakanson, John W.; And Others
This document compiles three Forum 40 addresses. Dr. Hakanson, a community college president, believes that unless we can successfully introduce the human dimension into our technologically based and production oriented culture, we will continue to see increasing disaffection among larger and larger segments of the population. He postulates a "creative society" in which social units will be structured so that people can and will identify with them, and with each other. If schools are to take a leadership role in structuring such a society, they must expand many of the activities going on today under the banner of community services. Schools and community colleges will become distribution centers for social and health services. Carl Hough, a Boeing Company administrator, focuses his remarks on the technological forces which may influence change, including lasers, computers, and satellites. Miner H. Baker, a working economist, stresses human elements rather than technological forces. He sees a movement toward an older, more stable population, living in a social structure without racial or sex discrimination. He sees an end to environmental and energy problems, but a continued inflationary thrust in the econom y at a level well above the historic average. (NHM)
