Review of Salient Points of Volume II: Implications for Education of Prospective Changes in Society.
Baratta, Anthony N.
This paper looks at the state of education and the society in 1980 and compares major changes occurring in the last 15 years with predictions made in a 1967 publication called "Designing Education for the Future No. 2: Implications for Education of Prospective Changes in Society." The author identifies on-target predictions and major changes that occurred that were not predicted. Correct predictions include increased teacher power, demand for teacher accountability, increased interest in equalizing educational opportunities, and a number of specific new emphases in educational programs such as life-long learning, utilization of improved learning theory, parent education, and increased citizen involvement in educational governance. Major changes that were unpredicted included decline in population growth, increases in energy costs, and decline in school support. The author includes some implications of all these changes for education. (Author/JM)
