Dr. Jack McKay
Educating children is, without a doubt, one of the largest tasks taking place today in the United States. Education is a big business and can be categorized as an investment to develop our human resources (Bodley and Shapiro, 1969). The National Center for Education Statistics (1990) reports that by the year 1993, $180 billion will be spent annually on elementary and secondary public education. Almost seven million professionals and support personnel are employed in public schools. Expenditures for public education constitute nearly four percent of the gross national product (Swanson and King, 1991).
