Visions, Issues, and Reality: A Changing South.
Willis, Bernice H., Ed.
The aims of this conference on education in the South were to identify important trends, garner expertise on the trends, and explore emerging educational issues. The conference produced 67 papers and talks presented at five subject sessions in addition to opening and closing sessions. Papers from the opening session discuss the role of technology in future educational change, National Institute of Education programs in the South, earlier conferences on educational futures, the effects of computers on public education, satellite communications, public schools' failure to accept new educational technology, and the necessity of examining possible educational futures. The five subject sessions, divided into 21 panels, cover educational policy issues related to the South, the past and present of southern education, regional economic development and educational needs, and the impacts of the telecommunications and computer revolutions on education. Papers from the closing session examine the regional programs of the U.S. Department of Education in the south, the need to redefine education, and the role of the Southeastern Regional Council for Educational Improvement in helping set a southern educational policy agenda.
