This paper by the World Bank, divided into three major sections, analyzes world wide trends in educational development. It states that educational systems in developing countries are all too often ill-conceived and are not adapted to developmental needs. The first section describes worldwide trends in educational development during the period from 1950 to 1970. The second section summarizes the state of education throughout the world at the beginning of the 1970's and sets forth issues and problems that confront developing nations. Five basic issues are discussed which include the development of skills and their relevance, mass participation in education and development, education and equity, increasing efficiency, and improving management and planning. The third section deals with the educational lending policies and programs of the World Bank and the International Development Association. Part one of the third section outlines the bank's policy and activities from 1963-1974. Part two outlines the objectives of the bank in lending for education. Part three discusses the bank's current lending programs, future possibilities, and problems developing from the policies. (DE)
