This special issue of the newsletter contains excerpts from 6 documents selected by the editors from among all papers produced in member nations of the Council of Europe in 1976. The documents were chosen as discussing major issues in educational reform. Three of the reports appear in French, and include excerpts on education taken from President Giscard D'Estaing's books "Democratic Francaise," a report from the minister of education on the objectives of instruction, and a report from West Germany on the quality of teaching. Articles in English include one from the Netherlands and two from the United Kingdom. The Dutch paper concerns the plans of the Netherlands to move from a dual system of higher education to a unified one. Reports from England include excerpts from the Prime Minister's speech in which he advocated a middle-of-the-road policy emphasizing basic skills in the early years, rather than a child-centered approach; the final report concerns support for the arts.
