World Problems in Education: A Brief Analytical Survey. Studies and Surveys in Comparative Education.
This publication is one in a series published by Unesco which offers to the general public and to persons concerned with education an integrated picture of a major problem or a more general study of major trends in education over a given period. This particular book contains an analytical survey of world problems in education during the 1970's. In gathering information for the work, the author examined topics proposed at international meetings dealing with problems of education, looked at national reports submitted by states participating in these conferences, and surveyed the proceedings of small meetings convened in various regions of the world by international agencies. The publication's contents include the following: (1) education on the move; (2) secondary education, training, and employment; (3) problems and new prospects in higher education; (4) a stage in adult education; (5) the Report of the International Commission on the Development of Education; (6) priority to innovation; and (7) a crisis in international cooperation. Also included is a bibliography containing the principal sources of documentation used during the writing of the study, as well as a few publications, books, and articles of interest on the topic.
