The material is organized into three sections: the social and economic background of the Arab region; recent achievements and existing problems of education in the Arab region; and the work and resolutions of the Marrakesh Conference, including concluding educational perspectives in the Arab region for the 1970's. Special attention is given to the subjects of integration of educational plans into comprehensive plans, the balance between the types of secondary education and between the different levels of education, the quality of education, technical education and its expansion, access of girls to education, and functional literacy. Presented in the appendices are perspectives for formal education in the Arab States (1968/69-1980/81) and tables relating to educational achievements and problems discussed in the text. (Author/KSM)
