Trends in Society's Demands on Educational Institutions.
Wilson, Laval S.
Implications of some specific educational trends and their possible impact on the institutional structure of public schools are discussed. These trends are grouped under the categories of public criticism, finance and governance, and labor management friction in the schools. Central in this discussion are the future ramifications of Proposition 13 and similar legislation. A warning is given that not only will education programs be cut back but that the governance of public education will progressively go to administrators who are adept at fiscal management rather than to education experts. Increased flight of middle-class families to suburban schools as friction between teachers and management increases is predicted. (JD)
