Worth, commissioMr for educational planning. Dr. Worth, spcciisg to i bsa- quet of the Alberta Teachers' Association annual representa- tive assembly, warned about 450 teachers and their wives that if teachers don't soon adapt to these changing needs, 'our efforts at mass produc- tion of teachers will have pro- duced only assembly Kne work- ers who, lite their counter- parts in industry, will someday be automated of existence by advances in technology." He called on teachers to pa; greater attention to "the feel ings, self and emotions" of stu- dents, and educate for "em patSry, compassion, trust, seM growth and self-esteem." He said the fear is frequent- ly expressed that "the educa Honal system is drifting dan- gerously close to being among the most irrelevant institutions of our time. It is argued tha our children and youth are be- ing educated more in accorc ance with yesterday's than in preparation for tomor row's living." SchooU have'drirted out of touch .of the realistic aeeds of a student's education, he suggest- nut reassess them- selves and so must teachers to develop new means of educating.
