Seven papers are presented which deal with current topics of interest to educators. A case study of a mentally retarded boy placed in a regular classroom illustrates the possibilities of teaching children to accept diversity and deviance from their accepted norms of behavior. A compendium of policy papers prepared for the House of Representatives is reviewed, in which contributors from a broad spectrum of professional educators stated predictions of future needs and recommendations for changing practice in elementary and secondary education. A brief discussion is offered on how to use the ERIC system with particular reference to librarians and media specialists. A bibliography of classroom and program resources on health education lists current documents available from ERIC. Two editors offer suggestions for teachers who would like to be authors. The problem of censorship faced by teachers and librarians is discussed, and legal resources for aid in combatting it are cited. A synthesis of thought on implementing educational innovations in schools is presented. (JD)
