Individual Demand for Education: General Report and Case Studies. Volume II.
Designed to respond to the changing requirements of educational policy formation, Volume II on "Educational Demand for Education" offers a general report based on the findings of its case studies of four countries--France, Germany, Greece and the United Kingdom--together with the results of Volume I, which presented the theoretical framework used for the study of individual demand, supplemented with its application to one country in particular--Sweden. Volume II is divided into four sections: General Report (Jane Marceau); France (Philippe Cibois); Germany (Dirk Beckerhoff); Greece (Constantine Saumelis); and the United Kingdom (Alan Gordon and Gareth Williams). Educational demand is determined by examining four factors: psychological/individual; structural/institutional; social/familial/ and economic/financial. Case studies examine educational trends based on statistical data and surveys, and offer some future considerations for policy formation. The general report offers policy considerations such as incentive systems, recruitment policies and information and guidance systems. It is suggested that constant monitoring of educational patterns be established to meet individual and social educational demands. Work from Volumes I and II had its origins in the continuing concern of the Education Committee of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development. (LC)
