Educational Development--Some Practical Issues. Occasional Paper No. 2.
United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Paris (France).
The document presents eight 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 and governmental authorities in developing nations regarding major policies, plans, and priorities for their national educational 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 ways of projecting annual entrants to primary school; characteristics of educational institutions in Denmark, West Germany, Great Britain, and Sweden; technology in the general education curriculum; integration of science and technology in junior high and senior high schools; vocational education for students in the least developed nations; space requirements and teacher needs required by various educational methods; rural educational development; and identification and selection of educational development projects which will receive funding from UNESCO and other international organizations.
