The proceedings of the 1982 annual meeting of the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools, which focused on interdependence in education, are presented. Four papers on interdependence as well as information on the business meeting of the Association are included. Gordon M. Ambach in "Interdependence and Education" considers secondary school-college connections in New York State, networking education and cultural institutions, education and national defense, and education and industry partnerships for economic development. In "Interdependence in Education," Frank Robey discusses the report of the Southern Regional Education Task Force on Higher Education in the Schools, which focused on ways to improve the quality of teaching and learning at all levels. "Interdependence between Education and the Community," by Horace B. Reed, explores an evolving concept of the interdependence of education and community from the perspectives of the past, present, and future. Finally, "Interdependence between Education and Industry," by James M. Howell, discusses economic outlook and the relationship between economic growth and higher education. Additional contents include: reports of the Association's officers; reports of action by the Commission on Secondary Schools, the Commission on Higher Education, and the Committee on School and College Relations; lists of Association officers, trustees, and committee members; and the Association's charter and by-laws.
