"Defining the New Realities."
Salmon, Paul B.
To impress upon his audience the importance of education in the United States and the world, the author of this address discusses several aspects of current social reality that will be vitally affected by the extent of society's support of education. Among the topics on which the author touches are the high quality of the American political process, the need to reestablish education's place on the public agenda, the many ways in which neglecting education costs the nation, the character of education as a necessary and valuable investment, the time scale in terms of which education's impact must be measured, the value of learning how to unlearn faulty information, the importance of teaching love and patriotism, the successes of education, and the responsibility of today's administrators to protect education's interests.
