Family Life Education: Aims, Rights and Responsibilities of Teacher Organisation. WCOTP Pacific Regional Conference (3rd, Suva, Fiji, December 7-13, 1980).
World Confederation of Organizations of the Teaching Profession, Morges (Switzerland).
This publication contains the proceedings of a Pacific Regional Conference held in Fiji by teachers to discuss family life education and the responsibility of teacher organizations. The purposes of the conference were twofold. First, the conference was intended to make teachers more aware of the need for family life education (FLE); to provide them with an opportunity to exchange ideas on its aims and scope; and to help them consider ways and means which can be adopted in their countries for promoting FLE at all grade levels. Part one of the publication contains excerpts of papers discussing the scope of FLE; linkage between family welfare and family planning; and family life education in Australia, the Cook Islands, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Tonga, and Tuvalu. The papers in part two of the publication reflect the second purpose of the conference which was to study the aims, rights, and obligations of teachers' organizations. If teachers are to be agents of educational change, they need to be organized. They also need to be organized if they are to secure for themselves the rights to which they as teachers and citizens of their respective countries are entitled. Part three of the publication contains resolutions passed. (Author/RM)
