Futurism in American Education.
Ludwig, Merlin A.
Schools are experiencing pressure to integrate into school programs the educational concepts that society demands. Other factors affecting educational administration are (1) conflicts over control of schools, (2) lack of confidence in decision-makers, (3) reduction of the separation between policy-making and day-to-day administration through school board involvement in administering schools, and (4) citizen apathy. In the future, education will be characterized by sensible and humane accountability systems that keep the dignity of students in the forefront. Citizens will decide to become involved in those things that affect their lives. The roles of superintendents and principals will be filled by those able to thrive under rather substantial pressures in a management setting. Teachers will update their skills in human relations, pupil control, and teaching methodologies. Finally, the trend for education to move away from school buildings will intensify. (MLF)
