Growth and education : a strategic report to the Rockefeller Brothers Fund on the implications of growth policy for postsecondary education by Lewis J Perelman( Book )

2 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document attempts to identify for the Rockefeller Brothers Fund how it may best invest its resources in postsecondary education to facilitate transformation to an equilibrium state. As the work of the project developed, it was found that the issue of "limits to growth and higher education" had two facets: (1) what role can the postsecondary education system play in developing or implementing models of alternative futures and solutions to the present crisis; and (2) how can postsecondary education solve or even approach its own "limits to growth" of rising costs and dropping enrollments and revenues? In order to recommend funding strategies, six key ingredients of "leverage" on the postsecondary education system were identified. These are: (1) interest; (2) understanding of the nature of the problem confronted; (3) identification of development of curricula appropriate to the problem and to educational goals; (4) models of educational settings that reflect curricular goals and methods; (5) expertise in organizational development to facilitate necessary change and innovations; and (6) incentive systems that reward appropriate curiculum development and institutional change. The document also recommends goals; defines an adequate ecological education; defines resources and needs; and recommends seven possible projects. Appendixes a to I follow. (Author/KE)
