Part one of the newsletter discusses the results of three reports produced by the International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement (IEA). The reports are the result of an international survey in the IEA cooperating countries on achievement in science, literature, and reading comprehension. In general, the findings confirm that educational achievement is directly related to the student's social circumstances, irrespective of differences in school organization or resources or the qualifications of the teacher. Part two provides educational news from ten European countries. In Denmark, universal compulsory education for 12 years is under consideration, and in Finland and Germany reports have been released on future planning in education. Also from Germany are discussions on pre-school education and the constitutional limits to the reform of higher education. In the United Kindgom, porposals have been announced for a complete reform of sixth form examinations and curricula, and the Labour Party has announced its educational policy for the 1970's. Articles are also presented from the Netherlands, Norway, Spain and Sweden outlining educational trends. News from Belgium and France is reported in French. (JR)
