An Investment in Human Futures. A Report by the Commission for the Assessment of the Intercultural Contributions of the American-sponsored Overseas Schools.
American Association of School Administrators, Washington, DC.
One hundred thirty schools in 74 nations met the criteria for assistance as American-sponsored overseas schools in 1970-71-nonsectarian; nonprofit elementary and secondary schools; established and maintained by American groups; enrolling American, host-country, and third-country youth; and following basically American or binational curricula and under the direction of American-trained personnel. Each school has been organized within the framework of formal and/or informal agreements with the host country. Typically, they are governed by a formal association of parents who elect a board of education to serve as their policy-making representative. Maps, figures, and graphs present demographic data about the students enrolled in these schools. The pamphlet reports on teacher preparation, curriculum development, and school-community relations at these schools. (Author/MLF)
