National Educational Research Policies: A World Survey.
This report presents the findings of a study in which the member nations of UNESCO were surveyed concerning their education research policies. Specifically, the survey focuses on how research priorities are decided upon, how research is organized, how the results of research are disseminated, and what strategies are employed to make use of research results. Organized into three parts, part 1 summarizes the main findings of the survey. Part 2 presents regional syntheses of the survey findings. Five syntheses are included: Educational research policies in Africa (E. Ayotunde Yoloye); Educational research policies in Asia and the Pacific (R. P. Singh); Educational policies in the Europe Region (Edmund King); Educational research and decision-making in Latin America and the Caribbean (Gonzalo Gutierrez); and Educational research policies and decision-making in the Arab States (Salman Abu-Ali). Part 3 presents the main recommendations of recent regional and international meetings of UNESCO member states that have concerned educational research. A 24-item bibliography and appendices that include the questionnaire sent to UNESCO member states also are included. (DB)
