This journal of educational research contains five papers written by international authors. The initial paper presents the evaluation of a French immersion program for students from the second through the fourth grade in Toronto. The aim of the second paper, written in French with an English summary, was to find the attitude dimensions of French Canadian primary school teachers and to discover the contents of those dimensions. The third paper, also in French, describes an experiment of computer assisted instruction for diabetic, insulin dependent patients. The fourth paper identifies problems experienced by first year university students of various ethnic backgrounds at the University of Fort Hare, South Africa. The final paper investigates relationships among locus of control, difficulties with social groups, and psycho-social difficulties in social situations. Current educational research being done by various international educators is chronicled, and information about current events of the World Association for Educational Research is presented. (JN)
