The Future of Education: Policy Issues and Challenges.
Cirincione-Coles, Kathryn, Ed.
Twenty articles, with an introduction, discuss future educational policies and problems in light of contemporary demographic, economic, political, cultural, technological, and social-psychological changes. The articles are grouped into three sections. Section one, comprising eight articles, examines the environment of education, including educational leadership, science education for women and minorities, rural educational needs, ethnic diversity in school staffs, the role of the superintendent, and political and demographic changes in school support. In the second section, another eight articles review practical problems and possible prospects in educational evaluation, fiscal reductions, the tasks of education, teacher education, collaboration between school districts and universities, private higher education, cooperative extension programs, and lifelong learning. The final section presents four articles that analyze larger cultural and global shifts, involving psychological and spiritual values, computer technology for education, definitions of children's rights, and worldwide economic developments and trends in the social sciences.
