United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Paris (France).
This report of proceedings summarizes a meeting held for facilitating the exchange of information between 27 educational specialists from 8 member states of the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization. These specialists held positions of responsibility in connection with the education of children belonging to families that, for occupational or socio-cultural reasons, were itinerant, or to children belonging to nomad population groups such as Gypsies, boatmen or bargemen, certain categories of seasonal workers, and other mobile population groups. The discussions covered several aspects of the problem of schooling the children belonging to these groups: (1) socio-cultural and socio-economic factors; (2) social and family structures; and (3) teaching methods and learning in conditions of mobility. This document summarizes the plenary session and the meetings of the French- and English-speaking groups. A list of suggestions for action and research are included. The Appendix contains a list of participants. (ALL)
