International Yearbook of Education. Volume 32.
Profiles of national education systems of 91 countries are included in this UNESCO yearbook. The content of the yearbook originates in International Conference on Education sessions in which member states of UNESCO discuss educational organization, status, and trends within their respective countries. For each nation, information is presented on the address of the ministry of education, general educational aims, administration, finance, structure and organization (including special programs, educational alternatives, religious training, vocational education, and functions of provincial boards of education), curriculum, and teacher education. Supporting information in the form of graphs and charts is presented for some entries. The document concludes with a bibliography listing national reports of member states, replies of member states to questionnaires on major trends and special objectives, and conference documents. (DB)
