Futurism - Neither Nurturing Nor Training for Education.
Kise, Leonard K.; Swanson, Jennie E.
The paper considers the future of education, particularly special education, in terms of theory. Reviewed is research in neurology relating to contra-lateral development in brain hemispheres, cephalo-caudal and caudal-cephalo myelination patterns or neural systems, and integration of neural patterns and neo-cortical control of the brain. Also reported is nutritional research which gives indication that genetic factors are quantitatively and qualitatively limited in embryonic and fetal development. A revision of present research procedures and educational applications of theory is suggested. (Author/SBH)
