International Bureau of Education, Geneva (Switzerland).
This profile on Afghanistan is the first in a series of profiles prepared by the Cooperative Education Abstracting Service (CEAS) to be issued in alphabetical order over a two year period. The collected profiles will constitute a concise guide to national education systems throughout the world and will provide points of reference from which to study CEAS abstracts of national policy documents pertaining to any particular country. Each country Education Profile, consisting of approximately 9 to 15 pages, will have three main components: a descriptive text, essential statistics, and organizational diagrams. The brief profile on Afghanistan provides basic background information on educational principles of administration, structure and organization, curricula, and teacher training. Statistics provided by the Unesco Office of Statistics show enrollment at all levels, from preprimary to adult; number of teachers; population by age groups; public expenditure on education; educational indicators by subject (level enrollment ratios, maximum age specific enrollment ratio, enrollment in natural and applied sciences at the third level, and public expenditure on education as a percentage of budget and GNP). Related documents are SO 005 687 through SO 005 695. (JMB)
