Educational Planning: A World Survey of Problems and Prospects.
United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Paris (France).
This monograph deals with the problems of educational planning at its preparatory stage and during implementation. It is presented in three parts: analytical examination of trends and problems in the field of educational planning, preparation of an educational plan, and implementation of this plan. However, the document provides no explanation of the methods of drawing up a plan; no descriptions of new administrative techniques, such as cost-benefit analysis or operational forecasting; and only touches briefly on specific educational problems and educational policy formation. After an historical outline of educational planning, the document explores the evolution of the concept of educational planning, educational expenditures, educational planning authorities, the inadequacies of past action, and some future planning difficulties. It next considers the determination of educational aims and policies; social and economic development; and the relation of educational development, technical and practical problems in educational planning, educational strategies, and research in educational planning. The final section deals with educational administration, resource allocation, educational finance, and the training of an educational planning staff. (Author/DN)
