The Education of Young People in Europe. Developments, Problems, and Trends.
Peterson, A. D. C.; Halls, W. D.
The educational trends identified in this report was those common to the young people of the member states of the Council of Europe. Emphasis is on the three most outstanding trends. The first, the concept of life-long education, involves an extension of pre-school education and continuing education for adults. The second consideration is the adoption of a comprehensive type of common school for the first phase of secondary education. The most uncertain important aspect of the educational process which commonly presents itself is the stage that lies between the common or comprehensive type of school and entry either to full adult employment, military service, or tertiary education at the age of 19 or 20. Other trends are discussed in chapters on the extension of pre-school education; primary education; problems of goals and structures in secondary education; administration, curricula and reform; technical education and employment; the interplay of educational innovation; resources for learning and pedagogical method; assessment and orientation; the training of teachers; school and community; and the international perspective. A concluding glossary records the sense in which certain terms are used in the report. (KSM)
