Education in France.
Male, George A.
"The broader perspective gained from examining educational systems of other countries has long been important and is especially so at the present time. France is of particular interest because of its strong educational traditions and its dedication to democratic principles. In the process of gathering information for this study, the author visited schools in France, interviewed teachers and other school officials, and analyzed materials published in France, as well as those in the U.S." Major chapters in the 200-page study included: History of French Education; Administrative Structure; Nursery School and Kindergarten; The Elementary School; Academic Secondary Education; Vocational Education; and Higher Education in France. Curriculum, teacher training, teaching methods, examinations, subjects, and enrollments, to mention a few, were included. Some highlights were: school enrollments have rapidly increased in France; the amount and kind of education needed is changing with shifts in the French economy; and educational reform in France included raising the compulsory school age, paying more attention to student aptitudes, and allowing higher status for vocational education.
