Decision-Making and the Schools in the 1980's.
Warner, Richard W., Jr.
The modern school system has become overloaded with expectations, many of which simply cannot be met. A large part of the problem is that programs are instituted without planning, thought, or evaluation, and concepts like career education are taught separately instead of being integrated into the curriculum. Successful dealing with problems confronting American education will involve clearly and decisively addressing three basic areas: the problem of change in our society, the problem of goal setting, and the problem of systemmatic planning and evaluating. Although an examination of the present educational system may mean that many responsibilities assigned to and expected of schools will be assigned elsewhere, the educational system must continue to develop the means for helping individuals deal with an ever-changing and uncertain world.
