Manpower Aspects of Educational Planning. Problems for the Future.
United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Paris (France). International Inst. for Educational Planning.
This report, a compilation of symposium papers presented by participants from diverse professional and cultural backgrounds, examines several urgent and complex problems that lie beyond the purview of the traditional "manpower approach" to educational planning. Although the participants represented developing as well as developed countries, the symposium gave particular attention to specific African problems such as subsistence agriculture, high educational costs, and rural unemployment. Topics covered in the report relate to employment opportunities for the educated, the role of education in rural and agricultural development, and the implementation of educational and manpower plans. A verbatim panel discussion of the papers is also included. Given the diverse backgrounds of the participants and the complexity of the discussion topics, full agreement on a set of recommendations was not reached. Rather, the symposium identified, examined, and clarified specific new problems emerging in manpower and educational planning. (JF)
