Kouluhallituksen jarjestysmuotokomitean I, II ja III osamietinto (Reports of the Committee on the Organization of National Board of Schools). Three Volumes.
This document is an English-language abstract (approximately 1,500 words) of a three volume report discussing the organization of the National Board of Schools in Finland. The central administration of education has been divided among the Ministries of Education, Agriculture, Interior, Commerce and Industry, and Social Affairs. The Ministry of Education supervises elementary, civic, and secondary schools, various kinds of teacher training institutes, adult evening schools, sports institutions, and others, through the National Boards of Schools. The greater part of the education system, based on the basic school curriculum (9 years) is now supervised by the Ministry of Education, having recently incorporated the National Board of Vocational Education. The NBS has been divided into six sections--two for elementary, two for secondary, one for adult education, and one for Swedish speaking schools. The committee maintains that the organization of NBS should be based on functional units: administration, faculty, accounting, government aid, school buildings, school affairs, school planning, adult education, curriculum planning and revision, experiment and research, inspection, special education, and teacher education. Volume two deals with administration, and the third volume with regional school administration. (Author/GDB)
