UNESCO INTERNATIONAL COMMITTEE OF EXPERTS ON LITERACY (SECOND SESSION, PARIS, 29 NOV-8 DEC 1965). FINAL REPORT.
United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Paris (France).
INTERNATIONAL MEETINGS ORGANIZED BY UNESCO, PARTICULARLY THE TEHERAN CONGRESS, HAVE PUBLICIZED THE LINK BETWEEN LITERACY WORK AND ECONOMIC, SOCIAL, AND CULTURAL DEVELOPMENT AND THE NEED FOR THE REVISION OF PRIORITIES. ACTION IS NOW NEEDED. UNESCO'S EFFORT TO ERADICATE ILLITERACY ASSUMES THREE FORMS--(1) CONDUCTING PILOT EXPERIMENTAL PROJECTS RELATED TO THE ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT OF THE COUNTRY, (2) SUPPORTING ACTIVITIES UNDERTAKEN BY GOVERNMENT AND PRIVATE ORGANIZATIONS, AND (3) WORKING OUT PRACTICAL METHODS FOR USE IN LITERACY TEACHING AND ADULT EDUCATION. A FUNCTIONAL RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN LIFELONG EDUCATION AND TECHNICAL AND VOCATIONAL TRAINING MUST BE ESTABLISHED, CONSIDERING THE LOCAL CONDITIONS AND COMMUNITIES CONCERNED. MODERN MASS COMMUNICATION--PRESS, RADIO, RADIOVISION, AND TELEVISION--WILL PROVIDE NEW AND POWERFUL MEANS. IT IS HOPED THAT DATA DERIVED FROM EXPERIMENTAL PROGRAMS WILL SERVE AS A GUIDE FOR ACTIVITIES CONDUCTED INDEPENDENTLY OF UNESCO AND FINANCED OTHERWISE THAN BY THE SPECIAL FUND. EVALUATION, BOTH ECONOMIC AND SOCIOLOGICAL, IS THE MAIN ASPECT OF TH EXPERIMENTAL WORK AND WILL BE CARRIED OUT BY TEAMS WORKING PERMANENTLY IN THE FIELD AND BY RESEARCH INSTITUTES AND UNIVERSITIES. EVALUATIVE DATA SHOULD BE COLLECTED FOR ANALYSIS AND WIDE DISSEMINATION BY THE INTERNATIONAL CLEARING HOUSE. (LIST OF PARTICIPANTS AND AGENDA ARE INCLUDED.) (AJ)
