Planning Education for a Plural Society. Fundamentals of Educational Planning-16.
This report is one of a series intended primarily for those engaged in or preparing for educational planning and administration (especially in developing countries) and for those government officials and civic leaders seeking a more general understanding of educational planning and its role in overall national development. In this booklet, the author examines the role of education in bringing unity to multiracial developing countries. He contends that some educational programs designed to correct economic and social imbalances between groups may, in fact, exacerbate race relations and undermine national unity. For these reasons, the author argues, planning education for a plural society involves more difficulties and responsibilities than does planning for a culturally homogenous society. (Author/JH)
