Neuschel, Robert P.; And Others
The papers in this section of the proceedings of the 1981 World Assembly of the International Council on Education for Teaching concern educational reforms and how they can address national economic needs.

The first paper, "Education and the World of Work," by Aliu Babs Fafunwa, of Nigeria, cites case studies of human resource development in developing nations and offers a reorganized curriculum to introduce elementary school children to the world of work. The second paper, entitled "Education for Employment in Uganda," by John Bigala, outlines the changes in the Ugandan education system since its collapse from 1971 to 1979. The final paper, "Linking Eductaion to Community Development and Employment in Czechoslovakia," by Svatopluk Petracek, describes the structure and philosophy of the Czechoslovak educational system, which has emphasized access to education.
