Education in the Eighties: The Case for Optimism.
Bailey, Stephen K.
Causes for optimism in attitudes about education include the growing maturity of educators about the inter-connectedness of things, the increasing realization of the revolution in fairness that presently permeates the society, and a growing impatience with laxity in education. Schools are striving for educational equity, improved inservice teacher education and professional development, and more support services. Administrators, teachers, and parents are realizing and accepting their responsibilitites in the educational process. A growing maturity, an unwillingness to be intimidated, and the recognition that complexity is negotiable are qualities that contribute to an optimistic outlook for the future. (CMJ)
