Efficiencies and Inefficiencies in Secondary Schools. Proceedings of the Second World Congress of Comparative Education Societies (Geneva, Switzerland, June 28-July 2, 1974).
Katz, Joseph, Ed.
The examination of the secondary school at this meeting took the form of examining a variety of internal and external domains, mainly societal changes, teaching, technology, curriculum, learning, measurement, structure, administration, and counseling. Eight plenary papers and forty-three abstracts of group papers express views as to the ways in which the secondary school might be made relevant to students and society. The central purpose of the secondary school is seen as helping students organize and direct their interests and capacities to the end that they are able to realize their full potential as persons and as citizens.
