This agenda item presents the comments of the Director-General, in which the origin of the Commission's work, general observations, main orientation of the report, recommendations of the Commission and methods to effect the report are noted. The main orientation emphasizes the connection of the educational crises with world problems, the use of historical analysis, and the relationship of education and society.
