International Conference on Educational Planning (Paris, August 6-14, 1968). Final Report.
United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Paris (France).
The principal aims of the conference were to analyze the experience gained during the past 10 years in educational planning and development; to evaluate main problems and future trends; to suggest ways of improving educational planning; and to devise strategies for extending and improving education in all member States. Four major ideas emerged from the discussions: (1) A concept of global development that recognizes economic, social, cultural, moral, and human aspects; (2) the beginnings of a strategy for educational progress that is concerned with life-long education and with worldwide development; (3) a guideline for educational planning that emphasizes the need to reform the content, methods, and structures of education as well as the need for expansion; and (4) a number of lessons for UNESCO on specific needs for research and training in the field of educational planning.
