On the Compelling Need to Go Beyond Minimum Competency.
Bracey, Gerald W.
Phi Delta Kappan, v64 n10 p717-21 Jun 1983
Basic skills being taught are often unrelated to skills required by new technologies. Teaching obsolete skills in minimum competency programs is useless, even racist. The concept of basic skills changes with emergent technology. Sound instructional systems require meaningful philosophy, goals, and awareness of the findings of developmental psychology and cognitive science. (PB)
