During the last fifty years, education has been in a flux due to continuous technological changes and greater interaction on the societal scene. As a result, developmental education practices have been the subject of controversy. Schools have been called upon to maintain their conservative, traditional role, yet, they are expected to continue with innovative ideas which will provide a quality education for all students regardless of their academic or socio-economic level. The stability of education at the local, state and national level is dependent on the maintenance of long-established customs; whereas, the progress of an industrial society demands constant experimentation so change can occur.
