It offers an integral view of education as an instrument of social transformation and an exposition of the quantitative and qualitative goals of the education program, and the measures necessary for putting it in effect. The introduction defines the essential objectives for each level of education for 1968-70. At the elementary level the aim is to ensure the implementation of compulsory schooling for the 7-14 age group in the various state capitols and the more important urban centers. "Operation Schools" permits the expansion of the functional literacy program, notable for the 15-30 age group. Elementary education needs to be expanded to absorb new pupils. At the secondary level the aim is to ensure the growth of public education and the scholarship system. The second chapter deals with policy lines and implementation plans to expand all levels of education. Chapter III deals with the economic and cultural aspects. The financial policy making it possible to increase the education budget is discussed in Chapter IV. The second volume deals with government action in the education sector. (Author/GDB)
