Challenges to Education in the 1980s.
Jordan, K. Forbis
During the 1980s, the issues that emerge concerning the public and federal interest in education will include the extent of education to be provided at public expense; the relative share of that fiscal burden to be borne by local, state, and federal revenue sources; public funds for nonpublic schools; equal access to education for all students; national performance standards; declining rate of growth in resources; and competition for funds among various social science programs. The capacity of government to maintain a balanced perspective with regard to these issues may be the greatest challenge. (Author/DS)
