Control Concepts in Educational Planning. Bulletin No. 5.
Francis, N. D.
The educational system is characterized by a vector matrix differential equation, and it is shown that the concepts of modern control theory such as observability, controllability, and optimal control can give deeper insight into the behavior of the educational system. The identification of the system dynamics and the definition of a realistic objective function are two major stumbling blocks in the way of progress. (Author/IRT)
