Funding for Curriculum Development: An Analysis of Some Policy Problems.
Green, Thomas F.
The problem addressed in this paper is how to design a policy or set of policies suitable to guide the National Institute of Education (NIE) in allocating funds for projects on curriculum research and development. Principles are set forth for ranking curricular needs in the allocational agenda. Three circumstances are described that would call for NIE action. These are the existence of a breakthrough in knowledge, the existence of gaps either in what is being taught or learned by the public at large and the existence of some strong national interest. Five activities in which NIE should invest are identified: (1) research; (2) development; (3) publication; (4) implementation; and (5) evaluation. (JD)
