Extracts from the European education press of October to December 1971 describe educational developments in the member countries of the Council of Europe. Some general comments on the Illich controversy (disestablishment of schools) and on the need for individualization of teaching precede summaries of developments in individual countries. Extracts in English describe the progress of Austrian school reform; priorities for educational policy and planning, and the extension of compulsory education in Denmark; the lack of implementation of reform plans, and the education of foreign children in Germany; long term Dutch educational policy; the appointment of a director for the Secretariat for Nordic Cultural Co-operation; comments on the Swedish report "education in the year 2000;" raising of the school leaving age to 16, the reorganization of local education authorities, and the pass rates of the Open University in Britain; and comments on plans for common standards for European universities. The reports on Belgian cultural autonomy, French projects for the reform of secondary education, the teaching of French and continuing education, and Italian projections for the development of public education are printed in French.
