Equal Educational Opportunity: 1. A Statement of the Problem, with Special Reference to Recurrent Education.
Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, Paris (France). Centre for Educational Research and Innovation.
The Centre for Educational Research and Innovation of the Organisation for Economic and Cooperative Development (OECD) has as one of its priority activities the exploration for new strategies for equality of educational opportunity as part of the process of educational growth in the highly industrialized and technological societies of the OECD area. This activity is composed of an experimental and an analytical wing; this document discusses the latter. The analytical wing is concerned with the entire age group (and therefore the whole school population) and with the alternative strategies for bringing about equality of educational opportunity. This paper is divided into two parts. Part I outlines the various approaches to the problem of equal educational opportunity and Part II examines the concept of recurrent education in more detail. An added purpose of this document is to outline the framework of thought and to state the questions to which later publications in the series will be addressed. (Author/CK)
