Chicken Little Was Right!. . . or . . . The Future of Education Is Now!
Olivero, James L.
Before addressing the specific issues of the learning environment, alternative schools, teacher selection, teacher preparation, neglect of gifted students, parent involvement, evaluation, and sex in education, the author presents three lengthy background chapters--"False Assumptions,""Organizational Development Through Interpersonal Action," and "The Future Is Now." The first chapter assesses the false assumptions that educators have about students and teachers and examines the six change steps in education. The second chapter focuses on instruments for inventorying personal values and assessing personal beliefs and performance. Against this background of personal assessment the author presents a list of eight skills that leaders need to develop. The third chapter focuses on how educators can learn to make decisions about what is important in the schools. (IRT)
