Apartheid; Its Effects on Education, Science, Culture and Information.
United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Paris (France).
Prepared in response to growing criticism of South Africa's policies of apartheid, this report was designed to assess the effects of such policies within South Africa. The results of the investigation are carefully laid out under four general areas. The first section deals with education, covering its aims, administration and finance, enrollment, curricula, school facilities, teaching staffs, and higher education opportunities. The section on science presents analyses of technical employment and manpower supply, scientific organization, research, international cooperation in science, and the emigration of scientists. The third section deals with culture, and considers such areas as religion, literature, public libraries, entertainment, sports, and assumptions about reality. The section on information considers the legal framework and application of the law, the press, radio and cinema, and international news. The report concludes that in all four areas apartheid violates, both in principle and in practice, the United Nations Charter and standards which have been set by the international community within the United Nations System.
