Features of Advanced Learning Systems
Jennings, Wayne B.
Schools of tomorrow will be completely different physically and operationally. The author of this article states that we cannot tolerate the current high failure rates in terms of graduation and possession of the competencies needed to function successfully as citizens in a democracy, productively as workers and heuristically as learners. He lists some of the features and principles of the new learning systems now barely on the school horizon but not unusual from the standpoint of research and existing but scattered practices. The author concludes by stating that as the practices delineated herein are adopted, the uniformity of schools will disappear.
