The Conventional and the Alternative in Education.
Goodlad, John I.; And Others
Alternatives in schools and alternatives to schools are placed within a broad social, historical, and philosophical context by six authors. The first section contains (1) a typology of educational alternatives, (2) several perspectives on educational alternatives related to a model of culture, (3) a range of conceptualizing alternatives within a comprehensive framework, (4) the relationship of the dominant humanistic movements to education, (5) the assumptions of educational evaluation, and (6) the notion of alternative education within a philosophical framework. The second section places future possibilities and prospects for attaining them within the framework developed in the preceding chapters. It contains (1) projections of the future evolving from extrapolations from the past, (2) a method for analyzing and planning alternative educational strategies, (3) incongruities between latent and overt values about schooling, (4) a measure of school success, and (5) problems encountered in the transition to a pluralistic society.
