Beyond the School: What Else Educates?
Hansen, Kenneth H., Ed.
Eleven essays explore the educational effects of social forces and agencies outside of the formal school environment. Speakers at the 1977 Chief State School Officers' Institute examined how these social forces can be used to enhance the work of the American school system. Speakers represented schools of education, research institutes, media groups, professional education associations, and individual institutions of higher education. Topics discussed were American culture, the family, media, arts and humanities, religious phenomena, the American political system, the American economic system, the business/labor/industry complex, and the educational effects of nutrition. The concluding speech considered the special responsibilities of chief state school officers and the benefits and pitfalls of comprehensive educational planning. (AV)
