The Spanish Educational Reform and Lifelong Education. Experiments and Innovations in Education No. 31.
Hochleitner, Ricardo Diez; And Others
The purpose of this report is to describe the present education system in Spain as it relates to lifelong education. The report identifies criteria and methodological problems in educational planning aimed at transforming school systems along the lines of lifelong education. It then describes how these principles have been incorporated in the reform in question. Changes include progress towards integration of formal and nonformal education, greater emphasis on quality of life, greater flexibility, democratization of education, fostering of motivation, and implementation of educational research aimed at improving teaching methods, learning activities, and evaluation methods. At present, the reform is still in the early stages of the implementation phase. (Author/FP)
