Meeting of Experts on the Content of Education in the Context of Life-Long Education. Final Report.
United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Paris (France).
The final report of a UNESCO meeting of experts on the content of education in the perspective of life-long education, held October 20-5, 1975, in Paris, is presented. Educators and researchers from around the world attended, as well as various UNESCO affiliated directors. A working paper was placed before the meeting which covered the following points: implications of the concept of life-long education for the content of education; reconciling the various functions of education; problems of distribution of content in the perspective of life-long education; and, contemporary problems and interdisciplinarity. Appended material includes: an outlined formulation of conceptual problems and proposals resulting from participant discussion of the report; a list of 10 topics suggested by participants for UNESCO action or encouragement; and a list of participants. It is stated that while life-long education would not mean de-schooling, it no doubt would mean changing the traditional character of school through a wide opening on the world of work, on the living culture, and on the moral and spiritual values of the world of today.
