Report of the Committee on Post-Secondary Education.
This report was produced by a committee appointed by the Council for Higher Education of the Ministry of Education and Culture (Israel) to perform the following three major tasks: (1) review all facets of post-secondary education excluding university activities; (2) suggest principles on which to base the development of post-secondary education; and (3) make long- and short-run suggestions for planning and directing various types of post-secondary education. Other major efforts were to initiate discussion regarding communication between different educational levels; the nature and value of awarded certificates; the possibility of using television, radio, and postal services for instructional purposes; and the concept of post-secondary institutions offering a wide variety of courses. The main part of the report consists of a review of post-secondary educational institutions and their role. Such areas as admissions, distribution of students in morning and evening courses, geographical distribution of institutions, program potential, and the role of teachers are discussed. Tables of descriptive statistics relating to Israeli education in general as well as post-secondary education are appended. (AL)
