A Trans-National Study of Formal Education: Its Relationship to the Social System and Its Consequences. Final Report.
Cohen, Yehudi A.
In a comparison of the educational systems of Israel and the United States, extensive observations are reported from field studies of representative samples of elementary and secondary schools in the two countries. Special attention is given to provisions made by each of the educational systems for education of subgroups within the respective populations. Chapter headings related to the Israeli study include: A method for the anthropological study of national educational systems; new nationhood in an Israeli context; Israel, its organization of group relations--persistence and change; persistence and change in Israeli education; decentralization, demons, and democracy; sources of change in education; Israel's silent generation; and the Israeli legal system. Chapter headings related to the United States study include: Identification with schools; training for opinions; differential education; a source of change in education; and Israel and the United States--education in perspective. A taxonomy for the content analysis of Israeli curricular materials is appended. [Not available in hard copy due to marginal legibility of original document.] (JK)
