Psychology, Education and Schooling: Social Policy Implications in the Lives of Children and Youth.
Hyman, Irwin A.
An overview is presented of the conceptualization of interaction between psychology as a profession, and science and education. A brief history indicates psychology lacks the ability to make a major impact on policy regarding education. Problems of improving schooling are discussed, within the context of American culture with special reference to the economy, social justice, the generation gap, punitiveness towards children, the crisis mentality in funding and the sickness model for providing psychological services in the schools.
