Who's Crazy? II.
Nelson, C. Michael
The notion of what is meant by the term "crazy" is explored and certain aspects of the educational system are labeled "crazy." The confusing array of federal and state policies dealing with students with emotional disturbances is noted, and questions are posed to educators and practitioners to illustrate the need to be open to new knowledge and new information. Aspects of society considered crazy include mankind's mistreatment and exploitation of the environment. Crazy, it is suggested, means operating in ways contrary to avowed goals and objectives. In conclusion, the need to examine current procedures and become open to change in ourselves and our systems is cited. (CL)
