Summary

The National Institute of Education (NIE), a Federal agency started in August 1972, is concerned primarily with educational research and development. Before NIE was actually established, a Planning Unit within the U.S. Office of Education generated many papers on what the objectives, activities, and organizational structure of NIE should be. This planning paper outlines the steps for an analysis of problems in improving educational quality. The analysis focuses on the following three factors as a vehicle for generating programs that may have some potential for improving educational quality: 1) isolation --the extent to which students are isolated from the broader society by their schools; 2) sameness--the absence of diversity within American education; and 3) piecemeal reform--the fragmented attempts at improving the quality of education which have not been sufficiently comprehensive and which do not address the systemic or structural variables that are necessary to fundamental reform. Questions to be considered in thinking about these areas are provided. (Author/RM)
