"We Don't Need No Ejikayshun": Needs Assessment Re-Assessed.
Weintraub, L. S.
Educational Planning, v6 n4 p24-38 Win 1988
Arguing that "needs assessment" is too vaguely defined, this paper considers the term's location within the planning field, compares two variants of the discrepancy model (classical versus social welfare approaches), and reflects on the assumptions and implications imbedded in needs assessment technocracy. Includes 16 notes and 26 references. (MLH)
