United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Paris (France).
This report covers the committee's views and recommendations toward strengthening the contribution of education to international understanding and peace. Suggestions are aimed at every level, from Unesco officials, to heads of government, to the individual classroom teacher. The report is divided into several major sections: General Observations, Primary Education, Secondary Education, Preparation of Teachers; Higher Education, and Main Suggestions. The sections covering primary through higher education discuss such topics as general educational objectives, curriculum and teaching methods, materials, research and evaluation, and how "worldmindedness" can be incorporated into existing subject areas. An appendix lists the participants, attending in a private capacity from 28 member states, and observers. (JLB)
