Directions for the Future: Federal Programs in Education Designed to Improve International Understanding and Cooperation. Final Report.
Marvel, William W.
The central focus of the report is on the changes, adjustments, and consolidation necessary to achieve national goals through international education. Recommendations pertaining to the federal agencies and activities in international education are presented as sets of options which seek to: (1) define the basis for evaluating the federal government's efforts in international education; (2) achieve greater efficiency in the use of high-level manpower and funds; (3) assure close agency linkage; (4) highlight the relevance of international education to the urgent domestic problems of American society; and (5) take account of sensitivities of peoples in less advanced countries. Shifting attention to long-range considerations, the report examines the problems of interagency coordination and balance of effort in international education, agency duplication and conflict in direction, and program articulation. The potential establishment of a new public-private agency to provide stimulation for the voluntary agencies in international affairs is considered. A comprehensive review of current and past programs is included with major relevant reports dating from 1949 through 1968. (Author/RL)
