Simposio interamericano sobre administracion de la educacion (Inter-American Symposium on Educational Administration).
Cespedes, Francisco S., Ed.
The presidents and foreign ministers in Latin America recognize the importance of applying technology to school administration as the first step in any educational reform. In October 1968, the Organization of American States (OAS) [Organizacion de los Estados Americanos (OEA)], sponsored a symposium in Brasilia, Brazil, in cooperation with the Brazilian government and the Brazilian National Association of Professors of School Administration. Attending the conference were Brazilian government officials, members of the sponsoring organizations, and consultants and specialists from the United States and 13 Latin American countries. The two dominant themes of the conference emphasized the values of school administration (1) as an instrument for the elaboration, execution, and evaluation of educational development plans; and (2) in the training and improvement of school personnel. In order to stimulate discussion, two papers were presented. Jack A. Culbertson, the University Council for Educational Administration, Columbus, Ohio, discussed "Administration: Fundamental Tool in the Development, Execution, and Evaluation of Educational Projects"; and J. Querino Ribeiro, of the University of Sao Paulo, Brazil, presented a paper entitled "The Education of School Administators." In this report, written in Spanish, both papers and their accompanying bibliographies are included. Also included are a list of conference participants, a descriptive analysis of the meeting, and a presentation of the recommendations agreed upon. (DS)
