Education in OECD Developing Countries: Trends and Perspectives.
Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, Paris (France).
A major purpose of this publication is to describe and analyze educational development during the 1960s in the developing countries that are members of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (Greece, Portugal, Spain, Turkey, and Yugoslavia). On the basis of this analysis, an attempt is made to assess anticipated changes in the educational systems of those countries during the 1970s and to identify priority areas of concern in planning long-term educational development policies. Extensive tables of educational data are presented to serve both as indicators of the present level of educational development and as a statistical framework for periodic reviews of educational progress in the developing OECD countries. Because directly comparable data were not always available for all the countries, the tables may be more useful for the study of educational development in each individual country than for comparative purposes.
