Formas de Ampliar os Recursos Internacionales Para la Educacion en la America Latina (Recommendations for Extending International Assistance for Education in Latin America).
Correa, Arlindo Lopes
This report sets forth the commitment toward improving the over-all quality of education in Latin America as first announced at the Punta del Este Conference in 1967. Recognizing that education is a universal right and its implementation must not depend on socio-economic affluence or political motives of any region, members of the Organization of American States pledged to promote both technical assistance (through working specialists and priority conferences) and financial aid (through direct contributions and package loans) to Latin America for developing educational programs. No specific country, school system, or program is mentioned. Rather, the statement is a general recommendation that educational improvement in the region be given top priority and avenues for assistance be determined. Statistical tables show geographic distribution of funds made available to less developed countries by other countries and multilateral agencies (1960-65), official bilateral contributions by commitments (1964-65), the percent of educational costs rendered by underdeveloped countries, and the socio-economic progress made in Latin America. Bibliographical data is also included. [Not available in hard copy due to marginal legibility of original document.] (DS)
