Revision of the School Career and Health Record for Children Attending School Abroad. Final Report. The CDCC's Project No. 7: "The Education and Cultural Development of Migrants."
Designed for use during compulsory schooling, the school career and health record described the child's knowledge, aptitudes, and general health at a given time. It was recommended that Council of Europe member states ask their school authorities to use the record for children attending school abroad for a trial period (ending July 31, 1982) and to report their experiences in using the record and any changes to its contents considered necessary or desirable. Although relatively little use was made during the trial period, the assessment revealed broad agreement in the countries using the record as to the need for such an instrument, and suggestions for improving the instrument and its effectiveness for educational purposes. Proposals for the record's revision concerned the internal arrangement of the tables giving schooling and personal/family information; general layout and supply, use, and forwarding of the record. Project Group No. 7 met February 23-24, 1984 to finalize the record's draft revision. There was a widespread reluctance shared by nearly everyone to make any further efforts to promote and use such a record, revised or not. The arguments behind the reluctance concerned primarily the type of information amassed and transmitted in the school record. (NQA)
