Economic Aspects of Quality in Education. The Fundamentals of Educational Planning: Lecture-Discussion Series No. 7.
Lewis, W. Arthur
In a controlled experiment, the IIEP attempted to develop efficient teaching materials in the field of educational planning. Informal instructional materials were compiled from the tape recordings, transcriptions, and summary notes of seminars, lectures, and discussions conducted by the IIEP in its training and research program. This instructional unit argues that the quality of education in a particular country is determined by the extent to which (1) the right combinations of general and specialized education are achieved, (2) the distribution of students at different age levels and proportions of competence fulfills job market conditions, and (3) the school achieves what it sets out to do. A summary of some tape recorded additional comments is included, along with discussion questions and suggested readings. Related documents are EA 003 931, EA 003 932, and EA 003 934-942. (RA)
