Progress of Education in the Asian Region: A Statistical Review.
United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Bangkok (Thailand).
Statistical data for the period 1950-1965, with some data up to 1967, are examined for implications for educational development of the rapidly expanding school-age population in Asia. The quantitative aspects of educational progress comprise the bulk of the review, with qualitative factors discussed in context with future planning. Numerous tables present information on population, area, illiteracy, educational attainment, enrollment, teaching staff, educational institutions, and educational expenditures in Japan and in the 18 countries which have instituted the Karachi Plan for universal compulsory education. A bibliography of documents available at the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization's Regional Office of Education in Asia concludes the report. (BD)
