Planning and Management of Educational Development: Report. Documents of the International Congress (Mexico City, Mexico, March 26-30, 1990).
United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Paris (France).
A major purpose of the Congress was to take stock of developments in the planning and management of education since the International Conference of Educational Planning (Paris 1968). Another was to identify new approaches and trends in the field in light of decisions adopted during the World Conference on Education for All (Jomtien, Thailand, March 1990). The 402 participants considered these questions in plenary, in commission, at round-table meetings, and in a special working group. Major themes included: (1) the role of educational management and planning in achieving the Jomtien goals; (2) educational planning and the human dimension of development; (3) the development of educational administration and management systems; and (4) educational planning and management in a time of crisis. Roundtable reports centered on planning and management for excellence and efficiency in higher education; planning and management of nonformal education; the use of microcomputers in educational planning and management; educational planning and management in small states; evaluation and followup of educational policies, plans, and reforms; and educational facilities planning. The Congress recommended that UNESCO intensify and diversity its regional and international cooperative efforts in educational planning and management, strengthen its training and research activities, and seek innovative formulae to overcome financial straits affecting education. Appendices (annexes) contain the agenda, opening and closing addresses, and lists of documents and participants. (MLH)
