The Strategic Context of Education in America, 1985-1995.
Snyder, David Pearce
The purpose of this document is to provide a context for the identification of issues that will be critical to the long-term future of public education in the United States and central to the long-term commitments and investments of the National Education Association. This paper is divided into three basic components. Part 1, "Inevitable Forces For Change--1985 to 1995," summarizes the major demographic, economic, and technologic trends and developments that will shape the educational operating environment during the next 10 years. Part 2, "Human Capital Economic Development, and Public Education in the Decade Ahead," examines the key linkages between public education and its changing environment, with special concentration on the educational functions and factors that will be instrumental in facilitating the nation's successful adaptation to post-industrial realities. Part 3, "Imperatives and Opportunities for Educators," synopsizes the fundamental tasks which education will be called upon to perform during the coming decade and describes the basic range of alternatives that will be open to educators in accomplishing each of these tasks. Following part 3, there is a set of exhibits containing references cited in the body of the documents. (SM)
