The Social and Economic Goals of Education: A Dichotomy?
Lawton, Stephen B.; Tzalalis, Theodore
Education Canada, v34 n1 p28-36,13 Spr 1994
A review of five sets of educational goals reveals an emphasis on academic and social goals over economic goals. This contrasts with current concerns for the economic utility of education and for increased accountability. Primary agents for achieving both academic and economic goals are strong central control of objectives but school-based accountability in a marketlike environment. (KS)
