148 p. 

Seven speeches, which were presented at the Fifth Annual Chief State School Officers Institute in 1974, examine the relationships among man, education, and society in the future. In "The Psychology of the Future," Alvin Toffler describes the traditional role of educational institutions as maintainers of a predictable society and points out that contemporary education must prepare youngsters for a non-predictable future. In "Manpower and Human Resource Needs," Willard Wirtz identifies unemployment, changing role of women in the work force, and need for continuing education as problems to be solved. "Dangerously Provincial" by Frederick Champion Ward stresses the need for international perspectives on energy use, food production, resource development, and population control. Allan K. Campbell reviews the history, current trends, and future needs of educational finance in "The Politics and Economics of the Future Financing of Public Education.""The Shape of Democracy--The Citizen Role" by Forbes Bottomly stresses that human values and political choices influence the future, not continued application of technology. In "The Public and Private Life of the Individual," Harold G. Shane sees population expansion, technology, coming food crises, and group values as influencing personal security. "Energy in Nature and Society" by Charles Ryan explains how traditional curriculum has fostered values that now conflict with our finite energy and resources. (Author/AV)
