Martinez, Maria L., Comp.
A proposal is advanced to the Latin American nations by the Department of Educational Affairs, Organization of American States (OAS), for a joint program of enacting educational reform. As mediator, the OAS recommends as an initial step the distribution of various publications offering information on actual educational programs currently in practice, and descriptions of educational systems in other countries. The first of such publications, "A Revision of the Social Studies Curriculum in U.S. High Schools," was published in 1968. The present study, written in Spanish, attempts to identify the educational objectives of secondary schools and to define sources, aspects, and changes in the curriculum; to evaluate current secondary school programs; and to assess the influence of learning theories on education. The four appendixes include outlines of educational reforms adapted in Chile and Venezuela, syllabuses for teaching social studies and history classes, and a bibliography. (DS)
