Public Elementary and Secondary Education in the '80s.
Broudy, H. S.
Privatism, vouchers, too many pressure groups, and a deemphasis of citizenship present the worst stumbling blocks to education. A five-point curriculum model includes: (1) the symbolics of information--the skills of language and computation; (2) the key concepts of a selected set of the physical sciences and mathematics; (3) developmental studies in three substrands (development of the cosmos, development of institutions, and development of culture); (4) problem solving of current societal import; and (5) exemplars--a selected set of class works that are worth studying in great detail. The adoption of such a curriculum design would contribute to the needs of all constituencies. (SAS)
