An Overview of the Issues.
Lipham, James M.
The introductory chapter considers how the major education issues treated came to be defined and what operational processes were utilized to address the issues. Then, some observations and generalizations are made concerning the varying perspectives and approaches utilized by the authors in attacking the issues. To assist readers in relating to the issues and their proposed solutions, the analytic schema, level of generality, and time frame used by the authors are considered. Since the functional view of education serves as the basis for organizing the content and for ordering the chapters, the major functions in education are identified as (1) the instructional program, (2) student personnel, (3) staff personnel, (4) school-community relationships, (5) administrative organization, and (6) financing education. The relationship of each paper to the major functions is summarized. (Author/MLF)
