Change and transition are words often heard and associated with the decade of the 1980's. John Naisbitt (1970) forecasted ten major changes in his book, Megatrends. The first chapter of that book predicted the movement in America from an industrial to an informational society. Innovations in communications and computer technology have accelerated this movement. A key point in that chapter described how the educational system was turning out an inferior product for an informational society in terms of basic reading and writing skills. Response to criticism of this kind has been to change school curriculum.
