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.
