Alternatives and Decisions in Educational Planning. Fundamentals of Educational Planning 22.
Montgomery, John D.
This booklet presents an analysis of the range of options open to educational planners in designing educational programs to serve major developmental and social goals. In his discussion, the author attempts to balance the theoretical with the practical dimensions of development administration. He focuses in turn on decisions related to technological design (first-order decisions), decisions involving choices among institutional functions (second-order decisions), and decisions that create incentives and motivate personnel (third-order decisions). Immediately following the discussion of each order of decision is an appendix that presents short illustrative case studies drawn from the literature on educational development. (Author/JG)
