Education for National Development Focus: Latin America (6th Annual Conference Report on International Understanding, University of Pittsburgh, April 16-18, 1964).
American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education, Washington, DC.
The papers delivered at the Sixth Annual American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education Conference on International Understanding, held in 1964, state and restate two basic assumptions: a) human resources are the most vital and fundamental element in national development and b) the development of human resources can be brought about only through education. This volume contains the texts of the conference papers, which deal with judging the value of educational aid programs, educational development in Latin America, teacher education in Latin America universities, the role of the U.S. government in international education, the university and Latin American national development, and the challenge to educators posed by the social revolution. Authors include educators from Latin America and the United States and representatives of four U.S. agencies with educational programs in Latin America. Working group reports on exchange programs and special training activities, international understanding and the curriculum, research needs in Latin American education, overseas advisory and service programs, and graduate training for overseas work are also included.
