Seven papers on experimental research topics in education, written by educators of various nationalities, are compiled in this volume. The first paper, written in French with an English summary, explores the ability of the teacher to exercise an indirect influence over student behavior and the systematic training of certain teacher behaviors to regulate their mode of action in the classroom. The second paper describes an empirical investigation of some of Sir Herbert Read's views relating to art education. The third paper promulgates a hypothesis which indicates a direct relationship between the training provided teachers and administrators and the type of educational preparation received by American public school students. The fourth paper, also in French with an English summary, discusses research which demonstrates by computer techniques that the readability of texts in French is poorer than in English. The fifth paper explores how a group of black South African university students perceive the goals of their education within an ethnically segregated university. The sixth paper evaluates the personality development of secondary school students from the suburbs of northern Paris. The seventh paper uses U.S. census data to correlate the variables of socioeconomic status and academic achievement. A chronicle of information about current international trends in educational research is appended along with information pertaining to the current events in the World Association for Educational Research.
