American Civic Issues in the Light of European Experience.
Nostrand, Howard Lee
This series of discussions is based on an experiment, created by a multidisciplinary French Civilization Group in Seattle, the purpose of which was to compare the ways in which different cultures deal with certain civic issues. Four discussions were held over a period of two months. Two were concerned with day care education, one with bilingual/bicultural education, and one with urban-regional planning. The session on day care contrasted the American model with the French, or Latin-European, the Scandinavian, and the Socialist models. The session on bilingual/bicultural education compared the American approach to that of West Germany. The final session described the French government's efforts after World War Two to decentralize government and industry, and compared these efforts to the United States' efforts at urban and regional planning. Each session consists of presentations followed by a discussion. (AM)
