Doherty, Ellen M.; Male, George A.
This review of recent trends in Spanish education focuses on governmental attempts to update educational standards by extending the compulsory school-attendance age, by eradicating adult illiteracy, and by constructing new schools. The report points out that the expansion of Spanish economic programs has shifted educational objectives to emphasize vocational training and the development of vocational schools at all levels. Major chapters, illustrated by tables, include: (1) new trends in education, (2) administration of education, (3) financial aspects of education, (4) elementary education, (5) secondary education, (6) higher education, (7) teacher education, (8) adult education programs, (9) programs for American students in Spain, (10) a glossary of Spanish terms used in the text, and (11) selected references.
