The Sixth Annual Report of the United States Advisory Commission on International Educational and Cultural Affairs; Is Anyone Listening?
State Univ. System of Florida, Tallahassee.
After an introductory commentary in which recommendations for and evaluations of the government's handling of international educational and cultural affairs are offered, this report indicates a need for continuity of personnel in both the Advisory Commission and the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. A proposal is made to establish a separate agency to coordinate all government-sponsored international educational and cultural programs, and suggestions for needed reorganization are outlined. Remarks about the long-range damage done to overseas operations by the revelations concerning the Central Intelligence Agency's involvement in foreign educational activities are made. A discussion of funding problems includes the establishment of a need for grants to pursue evaluation studies. Comprising the final section are the suggestions offered by the Government Advisory Committee on International Book and Library Programs. (AF)
