Selected Needs of Elementary/Secondary Education in the 1980's.
Phillips, A. Craig
Schools must strive to maintain a balanced curriculum in which students acquire basic skills in communication, computation, citizenship, healthful living, the sciences, the arts, and vocational endeavors. Both teaching and school administration can be greatly improved with new electronic technology. Financial reform will also be necessary, as funding will be restricted. Federal, state, and local funding efforts must be more coordinated. Allocation formulas must be adaptable by the local school. The integration of career and vocational training into the curriculum is desirable. More funding for the establishment of programs to help immigrants to adjust to the language and culture of our country is needed. (SAS)
