An Educational Model for the 1980's-90's.
Morris, G. Barry
An educational framework for the future should be based on an understanding of the nature of future society and reflect approaches significant to harmonious survival. The framework should include the concepts of change, conscious awareness, and cooperation. Concepts of change emphasize environmental change and change in personal behavior. The development of conscious awareness requires new modes of thinking. Specifically, a form of thought defined as global or universal should be explored. Also, because cooperative survival may replace the concept of competition, educational approaches should be aimed at individual and social cooperation. This framework would not require a curriculum change, but rather a change in how the student experiences the content. Changes in school programs may include greater emphases on physical education, personal development, human relations, self-reliance, relaxation, religion, and recreation. Finally, decision making and problem solving by educational leaders will involve cognitive, affective, and spiritual domains. (Author/KC)
