International Council on Health, Physical Education, and Recreation, Washington, DC.
This report on a joint United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO)--International Council on Health, Physical Education and Recreation (ICHPER) study in Chile reviews (a) how the study was approached in general, (b) its development and application, and (c) how it may serve as a model for similar studies conducted in other countries. After an introduction in the first part, part 2 presents the procedure followed in the study. Part 3 discusses UNESCO projects and the organization's commitment to international education. Part 4 focuses on the study as a pilot project in Chile and includes: background information; summary of findings; and recommendations to administrators and educators in Chile. Part 5 lists general recommendations to UNESCO. Conclusions based on project data indicate that: facilities are often lacking, meager, inadequate, and in need of repair; equipment and supplies are lacking or inadequate; there is a need for more professional persons in physical education, health, and recreation; more coordination is needed in professional education and services; and there is a need for more and better opportunities and experiences in the education process. Appendixes contain: background information concerning project preparation; a bibliography related to the project; a list of people and organizations in Chile related to the project; a statement of needs; and a follow-up statement in support of the project.
