Limit Our Horizons in the Land of Enchantment? The Challenge for Education by Gerald W Thomas( Book )

1 edition published in 1974 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper examines the trends in participation in higher education for New Mexico. Statistical data indicated that only 39 percent of the high school graduates in 1973 planned to enter college after graduation. Barriers to advanced education and training are discussed including intellectual barriers, financial barriers, and environmental and attitudinal barriers. Positive steps to increase participation in higher education and increase the quality of that education are presented, including: (1) The opening of opportunities for higher education and specialized career training beyond the high school to at least 65 percent of the New Mexico high school graduates within the next 5-year span (2) The realization that some potential students need extra counseling and services without compromising educational standards. Appropriations for these programs would be doubled each year for the next 5-year period. (3) The evaluation of programs and grants in aid. Much more emphasis should be placed on work-study programs. (4) Educational Programs should be designed to maximize options for career development. (5) More positive approaches should be taken to develop and support life-long education and retraining for all age groups. (Author)

Part I of this book contains invited essays on the subject of teaching by six professional educators who are regarded as experts in their fields. The papers are: (1) "In Praise of Teachers" (Mark Medoff); (2) "What Makes a Good Teacher" (Donald C. Roush); (3) "a Distant Teacher" (David L. Colton); (4) "Characteristics of Good Teachers" (Barbara J. Simmons); (5) "Teachers Make the Difference" (Dewayne A. Matthews); (6) "On the Subject of Teaching" (Alan D. Morgan). The second part is made up of 137 testimonials from a variety of responsible people who were asked to comment on teachers in elementary, secondary, and/or higher education who made a difference in their lives. Part iii contains observations on the patterns that emerge from the testimonials published in Part ii. Findings are related to research results from a study based on the approach of asking excellent teachers about themselves and their practice. A brief summary of data with observations concludes this section of the book. An Epilogue follows containing the authors' tributes to teachers who they feel made a difference in their lives. (Jd)
