Folketinksbeslutning om en reform af de grundlaeggende skole uddanelser, 30 maj 1969 (Parliamentary Resolution of 30 May 1969 Concerning Reform of Basic School Education).
This document is an English-language abstract (approximately 1,500 words) of a Danish parliamentary resolution requesting the Government to work out plans to introduce a bill for the continued development of the Folkeskole (elementary/lower secondary school) and other basic educational programs. The Folkeskole should be organized as a ten-year general school without specific vocational aims, comprising a nine-year basic school and a supplementaty tenth year school. The present curriculum, timetables, and school leaving regulations should be subject to impartial examination. Required and optional courses should begin in the eighth grade. In the tenth grade, students may continue in the Folkeskole or transfer to a Gynasium. By 1975, all children should be offered ten years of public education. Schools should offer assistance to the emotionally disturbed and the physically handicapped. Cooperation between school and home should be encouraged and supported. The eighth grade should be compulsory in the 1972/73 school year, and the 9th the following year. The rules governing the beginning of school attendance should be made more flexible to take greater account of individual differences and the wishes of the parents. (Author/GDB)
