International Advisory Committee for Out-of-School Education; Report of the First Session. (Unesco House, Paris, 18-26 March 1968).
United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Paris (France).
The fourteenth session of Unesco authorized the establishment of an international committee for the advancement of out-of-school education. The first meeting of the committee, held in Paris 18-26 March 1968, took care of election of officers and other procedural matters, established sub-committees on adult education, literacy, and youth activities, and then devoted the major part of its time to discussion of priorities and concepts within their field of expertise. Childhood education was considered particularly in relation to the idea that the education of children should be seen in a new light and radically reorganized, so that it is no longer viewed as ending with examinations and diplomas, but rather as something that must be continued throughout life. A need for new approaches to literacy education, especially in regions where literacy is to be achieved in other than the mother tongue, and for further research and experimentation in adult education, was also emphasized.
