IF one of the key roles of education is to prepare young people for the future why is the future a missng dimension in education? This book breaks new ground by bringing together three crucial concerns: the central role that images of the future play in social and cultural change; the nature of young people's hopes and fears for the future; and the need for schools to educate for a future that will be very different from the present. Part 1 looks at the role of education in turbulent tims and how students can be prepared more effectively for life in the 21st century. Part 2 describes recent research on primary and secondary pupils' views of the future and explores how hopes and fears vary by age and gender. Part 3 contains case studies of good curriculum practice and consideration of the wider implications for whole-school policy. This book should be of interest to all who work in primary, secondary and initial teacher education. It should be of particular value in shaping staff development and whole-school policy and for people working in child development, the humanities, personal and social education, citizenship and environmental education.
