Current educational developments and trends in the Federal Republic of Germany are presented in the articles and reports in this bulletin. The first article describes the present program and student body of a recently opened correspondence university in Hagen, Westphalia, and discusses its projected plans. The status of unemployment among youth in West Germany is examined in the second article. A third article reports the findings of a survey of the social background, initiative attitudes, and future prospects of youth without a qualified trade and suggests measures for helping them. Shorter reports deal with the opening of Bayreuth University, efforts at objective assessment of the economic efficiency of universities, the success of the recently opened "Berufsakademie" (Vocational Academy) in Baden-Wurttemberg, a proposed biology studies course for future biology teachers, and the decline in employment opportunities for teachers. Several brief news items provide information on current symposia, conferences, appointments, and other activities and issues in the field of education in West Germany. (MK)
