Education and Regional Development (L'Enseignement et le Developpment Regional). Technical Reports, Volume II.
Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, Paris (France).
Regional aspects of educational policies are discussed as they relate to member nations of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). The document contains 12 technical reports which were presented at OECD meeting of national education experts in 1977. The document is presented in four sections. Section I discusses regional development strategies. Four papers focus on the Tennessee Valley Authority, educational participation in the Albury-Wodonga region of Australia, political influences in regional educational development in France, and educational trends in Swiss mountain areas. Section II examines the role of education in regional economic and cultural development. Case studies upon which reports are based include Appalachia, the United Kingdom (Coventry and the West Midlands), and France. Section III discusses regional disparities in education based on educational planning in Sweden and trends in higher education in Finland. The final section examines planning and organizational issues. Papers focus on decentralization of educational decision making in Norway, regional autonomy in educational matters in Yugoslavia, and regionalization of education in Italy. For each report, a separate table of contents and a summary are presented. (DB)
