Recurrent Education in Yugoslavia. Recurrent Education: Policy and Development in OECD Countries.
Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, Paris (France). Centre for Educational Research and Innovation.
One of a series on the state of recurrent education in OECD member countries, this report focusing on Yugoslavia concludes the first stage of a research and experimentation project that Yugoslav authorities have begun. The basic characteristic of recurrent education, a post elementary system of education, is alternation of education and activity throughout an individual's entire lifetime. Recurrent education is a fundamental principle of Yugoslavia's educational policy to enable regularly employed people to acquire higher levels of education and skills from mutually invested funds. It has a sociopolitical context because recurrent education is conceived as one of the principle instruments for achieving a socialist society. The introduction to the report presents this background, with notes on Yugoslavia's general socioeconomic and educational situation and philosophy. Part one attempts to define the essence of recurrent education and its objectives, part two discusses implications of recurrent education, and part three lists questions and problems concerning the subject-content of the research project. A glossary of terms concludes the report. (ND)
