Leavitt, Howard B., Ed.; Klassen, Frank H., Ed.
The first section of this book deals with the concept of education as a developmental tool for the individual and for social institutions. Educational development is perceived as directed towards the problems of poverty and deprivation, social equality, quality of the environment, and participation in political processes. Section Two deals with inservice education as an effective response to the need for changes. In the third section a discussion is presented of innovations in teacher education and national research bases needed for reforms in education. The final section focuses on the importance of a dialogue between higher education and the corporate world. (JD)
