Characteristics of the Cultural-Educational Cluster Concept of the Future in the United States.
Payne, Joseph C.
Throughout the history of the development of the concept of community, human delivery systems have, with the consent of the community members, been combined for efficiency. Current societal pressures would seem to indicate that successful planning and implementation of the cultural-educational cluster concept will probably begin in a nonpolitical, nonprivate sector area. In most cases, the central institution will be the public educational system. The services to be clustered will need to be identified by a community planning group emerging from the community, service, and governmental sectors. For example, public health service, public welfare service, private secondary schools, drug abuse programs funded by private foundations, the urban education section of a local university, and the public school system can all combine to plan successfully the cultural-educational cluster project. Appropriately motivated, a community can conserve its resources, become fiscally responsible, and render a much higher proportion of good service to its citizens through the careful, coherent planning and implementation of the self-sustaining, self-sufficient cultural-educational services cluster.
