Cultural Development through the Interaction between Education, the Community, and Society in General.
Bustos O., F. M.
The interdependence between education and culture is of growing importance. Interest is growing in the relationship between the two, because of the pace of technological change, the effects of social currents, and the decision by the United Nations General Assembly to observe 1988-1997 as the World Decade for Cultural Development. One of the main objectives of education is to prepare the young for integration into society. The school also can serve as a cultural center of a given community, by providing a meeting place and cultural link between teachers, adults, children, and the communities in which they live. Educators can take advantage of the positive effects of the mass media upon society both through the use of educational technology in teaching and through teaching students how to use and critically evaluate the media. Schools can promote cultural awarness and development with the help of cultural and ancillary workers in curricular activities. Education increasingly is taking on the dimension of cultural project, while culture is considered an indispensible tool of education. (SG)
