International Education Year 1970. Educating for Development.
United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Paris (France).
The essential nature of the relationship between patterns of education and development implies a causal connection between education and unemployment. Potentials for improvement of employment opportunities and participation in economic growth, together with potentials for improvement of the relevance of education and training to development, are examined. Several aspects of economic planning and institutional arrangements should be scrutinized if progress is to be made in improving the articulation from school to work. Today's society, with its lack of synchronization among economic progress, educational aspirations, intra-education objectives, world-of-work needs, employment opportunities, and financial resources available to education, poses the need for new appraisals and new solutions to link education to development and development to education. Educators must create and staff a strong capability for self-examination, for research and development, for appropriate innovation, and for implementation of innovations which demonstrate a utility in meeting education's imperatives.
