Working Paper on School Education on Population Questions: Background and Major Issues.
Wayland, Sloan R.
The immediate purpose of this consultation paper is to plan for a proposed seminar or seminars which would offer training to personnel concerned with the development of population education and its introduction in education systems. Some aspects of the broader setting for this training are briefly sketched, such as: a) the formal actions taken by the various United Nations agencies indicating the programs and services available in population and family planning; and, b) ways in which Unesco's role in educational systems in population/family planning differs from Unesco's work in other areas. A number of problems need to be considered: 1) definition and delineation of population education; 2) problems of curriculum development; 3) instructional materials and aids; 4) teacher education; 5) training of leadership personnel; and, 6) evaluation. In considering possible answers to these problem areas, the meeting may be in a position to provide guidance not only on specific matters such as objectives, content and scope of the proposed training courses, but also on the wider overall program of action into which the course should fit.
