World Council of Comparative Education Societies, Geneva (Switzerland).
This document is a record of proceedings of the First World Congress of Comparative Education Societies which met in August 1970 to discuss three questions: (1) the administrative and juridical aspects of creating a Council and a continuing Congress; (2) the place of comparative and international education in the education of teachers; and (3) the role and rationale for educational aid to developing countries. The document contains twenty-nine papers delivered to the Congress, loosely organized into the following categories: (1) the place of comparative and international education in teacher education (general discussions, the subject as a valid field of inquiry, its relevance to teacher education); (2) comparative and international education in specific countries (Federal Republic of Germany, Singapore, Hong Kong, Romania); (3) comparative and international education at various levels of teacher preparation (undergraduate and graduate) and for all levels of teachers (K-12); (4) course organization; and (5) teaching materials and aids. Appended are a list of conference participants and final resolutions of the Congress. Guidelines based upon the Congress papers are also appended. (MJB)
