Educational Development--Some Practical Issues. Occasional Paper No. 1.
United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Paris (France).
The document presents 11 papers dealing with educational administration in developing nations. It is intended to aid UNESCO staff members and other educational advisors as they collaborate with policy makers in developing nations to improve educational programs. Written by staff members of UNESCO's Division of Educational Finance, the papers reflect concerns expressed by educational authorities in developing nations regarding major policies, plans, and priorities for their national systems. The practical problems and theoretical issues were identified by UNESCO staff members during 74 fact-finding missions to developing nations conducted from 1965 to 1975. Sample topics focus on equity in educational planning, agricultural and vocational training, differences between rural and urban education, training centers for rural development, technical training in the Soviet Union, engineering education, rural education in Honduras, teacher training programs, political influences affecting teachers, and veterinary training. For most of the papers, schematic sketches, tables, charts, and graphs are presented along with case studies representing aspects of educational systems in one or several countries. (DB)
