Educational Trends in 1970, An International Survey.
International Bureau of Education, Geneva (Switzerland).
This survey, prepared by the International Bureau of Education, is based upon reports of national educational trends made by 75 countries in 1969. A brief discussion of enrollment, literacy, teacher utilization, and public expenditure on education from 1960/61 to 1967/68 for primary, secondary, tertiary, and adult levels is supplemented by graphs and appended tables for the world and for seven regions. Generalizations about policies and problems of education, and the changes in educational organization, content, method, availability, and research are illustrated by examples from a number of different countries. These earlier chapters explain and illustrate the final chapter, containing the report of the 32nd session of the International Conference on Education (1970) which discussed trends in education from the viewpoint of Education Ministers and officials from 87 countries. The report identifies points of agreement and some divergent opinions on the following topics: education--change or evolution; directions and strategies of change; the structure, content, and technology of education; the teachers' role; and educational research.
