ABSTRACT
The article identifies futures trends in curriculum planning. The Virginia Beach, Virginia schools formed a 36-person task force to examine futures literature and identify trends that could have an impact on education. The task force studied alternative futures, reviewed the literature on educational planning and examined the effects of science and technology. It reveals the three separate curriculum needs implied in the proliferation of knowledge and increasing specialization within the fields of knowledge. The 15 implications selected by the task force as having the most significance for Virginia Beach schools include basic academic skills and early childhood programs.
