Reviews of National Policies for Education: Ireland.
Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, Paris (France).
A survey of Irish education and economic development was carried out during 1962-1965. The survey was conducted within the framework of the Educational Investment and Planning Programme of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) for presentation at a confrontation meeting in October 1966 with OECD's Committee for Scientific and Technical Personnel. Part one of the document consists of the Examiner's Report of Irish education. It contains examinations of the general framework of educational planning in Ireland; the educational system and enrollment trends; the evolution of the educational system in the context of economic and social development, including problems and strategies for change; and an overall strategy of educational development. Specific issues chosen for review at the meeting were the planning mechanism for education, manpower planning and targets, social participation, primary education, secondary education, higher education, and adult education. Discussions of the issues are contained in the record of the Confrontation Meeting, which is part two of the document. A summary and comments on "Investment in Education," some issues and problems emerging from the survey, and policy statements by Irish ministers of education are included as appendices. (ND)
