Part one of the newsletter is devoted to excerpts of lectures presented at a symposium on research and reform in teacher education. The symposium was held at Bristol University under the sponsorship of the Council of Europe's Educational Research Committee, and was attended by researchers and administrators from 18 member states. Part two provides educational news from 10 European countries. From Denmark come protests against a new ministerial policy increasing the teacher's work load, and in Germany problems of student admission and study reform in higher education are causing concern. Educational policies of the new government in Ireland are reported, the role of the post-primary teacher is examined in the Netherlands, and in Norway the government has proposed to split the present Ministry of Education and Ecclesiastical Affairs. Sweden reports the results of the 1968 Education Commission proposals for the reform of higher education. Topics discussed from the United Kingdom are the results of the Russell Report on adult education, the annual report of the Open University, and vocational training for girls. Educational news from Belgium, France, and Switzerland are reported in French. (JR)
