This document is an English-language abstract (approximately 1,500 words) of recommendations made at the Conference on Education in the Modern State. The recommendations were grouped into six main headings: (1) economic and financial matters; (2) syllabuses, textbooks, educational activities and methods; (3) teacher training and the improvement of teaching standards; (4) educational administration; (5) services for students; (6) educational aims. The aims of education in the UAR is to recognize the primacy of science and its close relationship to technology, to foster ideology through technology, to recognize the rapid evolution of society, to integrate and plan for a democratic society opened to the outside world. Good planning was thought to be the key to maximum utilization of limited financial resources. A lot of changes were recommended for scientific curriculum planning, including experimentation, socialist indoctrination, audiovisual aids, coordination with the Ministry of Culture, educational television, more research, and many other contemporary techniques. A proposed research body would seek to develop examination and performance evaluation techniques. Several recommendations dealt with teacher training. Centralized planning with decentralized implementation was considered a positive administrative solution. (Author/GDB)
