Education Tomorrow: For Whom? Why?
Jordan, Barbara; And Others
This collection of six presentations is by no means a complete summary of the College Board's Annual Meeting and National Forum, but it represents the major subdivisions of the forum theme. Barbara Jordan, U.S. Representative from Texas, stresses the need for cooperation between educators and legislators in achieving the goal of equal opportunity. R. Freeman Butts, educational historian, points out that education has had at least seven distinct purposes--academic discipline, social efficiency, individual development, vocational competence, freedom, equality, and a just community. James S. Coleman, professor of sociology at the University of Chicago, discusses the problem of creating public policy that is responsive at once to two opposing principles--equality of opportunity and individual liberty. David Mathews, U.S. Secretary of Health, Education, and Welfare, concentrates on the work of the College Board. Maurice B. Mitchell, chancellor of the University of Denver, discusses the difficulties of educational managers in four main areas: economic problems, society's changing values and goals, educational standards, and educational planning. Ralph P. Davidson, publisher of "Time," calls education the cornerstone of democracy and urges the continued support of education at all levels. (Author/IRT)
