The Top Ten Educational Issues, 1991 Edition.
Macomb Community Coll., Warren, MI. Inst. for Future Studies.
The 10 foremost issues in American education are discussed in this document. Based on the premise that three-quarters of the effects on an institution are triggered by external forces, the focus is on external influences on education. The discussion is intended to move readers to the level of organizational discussion and debate. Twelve sections present information on the current educational system's ability to meet overwhelming demands; citizen dissatisfaction and the push for immediate, low cost solutions; the conflict between entertainment and reality in instruction; developing visionary local governance; making sacrifices and trying new strategies to compete internationally; identifying common denominators among interest groups; meeting international educational standards; obstacles to change; recognizing and stopping violence in the schools; and appreciating the positive aspects of the situation.
