The Educational Needs of the 16-19 Age Group.
Janne, Henri; Geminard, Lucien
Reports for the Council of Europe were the basis for this study of the educational needs of the 16-19 age group. The first of four sections, on sociological aspects, contains five chapters: socio-cultural characteristics of the 16-19 age group; quantitative aspects of education; equality of educational opportunity; and an overview of the sociological approach. Part Two, on the pedagogical aspects, contains four chapters: modern education; educational technology; technical and vocational education; and an overview. Part Three discusses general issues, considering thirteen questions which attempt to define widely-accepted objectives for this age group within a consistent educational philosophy. Part Four, appendices concerning the quantitative aspects of the sociological approach, indicates through tables: 1) the present duration of full-time compulsory schooling; 2) statistical breakdown of the growth in school enrollment ratios; 3) rate of transfer and of admission to higher education; 4) unemployment rates; 5) relative changes of upper and lower stratum youth studying in universities; and 6) the educational and cultural district.
