CONFERENCE ON DEVELOPMENT OF CROSS-NATIONAL RESEARCH ON THE EDUCATION OF CHILDREN AND ADOLESCENTS.
HESS, ROBERT D.; AND OTHERS
NINE FOREIGN RESEARCH CENTERS AND 9 UNITED STATES RESEARCH CENTERS WERE REPRESENTED BY 24 INVESTIGATORS AT A CROSS-NATIONAL CONFERENCE IN CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, ON FEBRUARY 20-28, 1964. OBJECTIVES OF THE CONFERENCE WERE--(1) TO EXAMINE THE IMPLICATIONS OF CONTEMPORARY RESEARCH FOR EDUCATION, (2) TO PLAN NEW PROJECTS WITH PARTICULAR RELEVANCE FOR EDUCATION, AND (3) TO COMMUNICATE THE RESULTS OF THIS CONFERENCE TO A WIDER AUDIENCE IN ORDER TO STIMULATE INTEREST AND ADDITIONAL RESEARCH. A WORK GROUP ON CHILD-REARING PRACTICES SUGGESTED THAT THE PROBLEM OF OBTAINING COMPARABLE CROSS-NATIONAL DATA IN A SYSTEMATIC WAY BE APPROACHED BY SETTING UP TWO KINDS OF STRUCTURES UNDER INTERNATIONAL SPONSORSHIP--(1) A FEDERATION OF 7 TO 12 NEWLY DEVELOPED RESEARCH FACILITIES IN STRATEGICALLY SELECTED AREAS OF THE WORLD, AND (2) A RELATED, BUT MORE LOOSELY FEDERATED, AND PROBABLY LESS RECIPROCALLY OPERATED, STRING OF ABOUT 30 RESEARCH FACILITIES IN ALREADY EXISTING CENTERS OF LEARNING AND RESEARCH. THE WORK GROUP ON DEVELOPMENT OF SOCIAL ATTITUDES DEVELOPED A PLAN FOR CROSS-CULTURAL INVESTIGATION TO BE INSTITUTED IN THE UNITED STATES, GERMANY, ITALY, MEXICO, BRAZIL, AND POSSIBLY ENGLAND ON VARIOUS SPECIFIED AREAS OF BEHAVIOR. THE WORK GROUP ON COGNITIVE DEVELOPMENT DISCUSSED CURRENT RESEARCH PROJECTS PERTAINING TO DEVELOPMENT OF THE CHILD'S COGNITIVE FUNCTIONING AND VALUE CONCEPTS. (JM)
