Future-Planning as a Means of Shaping Educational Change


by Harold G. Shane 1971

It is the purpose of this particular chapter to present and to explore the idea that it is both possible and desirable to create a methodology for educational change and improvement. In other words, it is hypothesized that the present status of curriculum development can be made appreciably more significant through future-planning. The term "future-planning" as used hereafter refers to a reasoned approach to the study of the many possible alternate educational futures which could lie ahead, subsequent selection of those which seem most promising, and then engaging in a deliberate attempt to create those particular educational tomorrows which are deemed most likely to serve learners of all ages.
