Summary

Man's knowledge may be conceptualized and ordered into four domains or classes--formal knowledge, descriptive knowledge, prescriptive knowledge, and praxiological knowledge. In today's rapidly changing world of work, the key saleable skills are flexibility and adaptability. A secondary school program based entirely on the formal, descriptive, and prescriptive disciplines will not provide the necessary knowledges and skills for entry into the labor market. On the other hand, a school program geared to isolated occupational practices which may be obsolete within a few years will not meet the demand. A school program which provides a study of the fundamental principles of practice (praxiology) together with selected practice and a hard theoretical base may meet the challenge of the future. Attempts must be made to determine the basic and significant knowledge of man's practices, and this knowledge must be structured to permit effective and efficient tramsmissions to pupils at the school level.
