By RON CALDWEIL Herald Staff Writer Educators are in a dilemma, and for good reason. They don't have the slightest idea of the value ri tbi service they are providing or whether, in fact, they are pro viding a service at all. And, to complicate matters, there is no way to find out. Ask 10 people what they think is the purpose of education. Chances are you will get 10 different answers. It is just asking about the purpose of life? There must be some rea- son for it because everybody is doing it but no one knows exactly why. And how do you determine whether you are doing good job with your life? You can't. In the same way, no one can say with any certainty whether a good job Is being dont in the field of education. The productivity of education can't be measured. We may be only getting 10 cents value on every dollar or we could be receiving a double return on our investment. How much impact does schooling have on the life of an individual? If a person can be judged a success at age 30, how much credit is due to the education he received in school? Or, if a person tails in life, is the school to bear the major share of the blame? All educators can do is spend our money, develop pro- grams, train teachers and hope that they are doing the right no one will ever know for certain whether they are right or wrong. There is no way to tell whether our schools are doing the job. In fact, no one can say for sure what that job is supposed to be. That is the problem with education. It rests in twilight zone of reality going from one day to the next, one year to the knowing really where it Is going at all. Education u the only field of human endeavor that does not have to prove its worth." A lawyer has to win cases. A doctor has to make people well. A ditch digger has to dig ditches. A basoball player has to hit home runs. For everyone else, proof of their performance Is there for all to see. But, not for educators. They don't know the worth of what they are doing. And, there is not a solitary soul who can tell them.
