Educational Planning: A Reappraisal.
Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, Paris (France).
This reappraisal of educational planning, implementing a decision of the Education Committee for the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), has two main objectives: to review the evolution of concepts, approaches, and practices of educational planning in member countries during the past 20 years; and to identify new features of planning that can help educational authorities design future policies that take account of changing educational demand and limited financial resources. The book is divided into three thematic parts to give conceptual consistency to the various contributions. Part 1, "The Evaluation of Educational Planning Concepts and Approaches," consists of three chapters: (1) "An Overview" by C. Soumelis; (2) "Educational Policy Planning and Educational Research" by K. Hufner (a model for communication between the two professions); and (3) "New Features in Educational Planning," a critique by K. Eide. Part 2, "The Practice of Educational Planning: Country Experience" is divided into two chapters describing educational planning in countries (4) with federal systems of government (Australia and Germany) and (5) with unified systems of government (France, Japan, and Norway). Part 3, "The Future of Educational Policy/Planning," is likewise divided into two chapters: (6) "Long Range Educational Policy Planning Perspectives in OECD Countries: A Review of Issues and Policy Proposals," by J. Tinbergen and G. Psacharopoulos; and (7) "An Agenda for the Future: A Framework for Educational Policy Planning" by G. Williams. (TE)
