This report stems from a meeting of representatives of countries in the Asia Pacific region concerned with the development of strategies for strengthening content relating to humanistic, ethical, and cultural values in formal and non-formal education. The following countries were represented: Australia, Bangladesh, China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Lao People's Democratic Republic, Malaysia, New Zealand, Pakistan, the Philippines, Republic of Korea, Sri Lanka, Thailand, and Viet Nam. Comprised of four chapters, the report's first chapter includes summaries of each country's report of its own experiences in education concerning humanistic, ethical/moral and cultural values. The second chapter puts forth a curricular framework for promoting humanistic, ethical/moral and cultural values in education. This chapter includes tables that identify conceptual themes and curricular topics within social studies, science education, and language arts where the themes may be developed. The third chapter contains six sample teaching units, two each on humanistic, moral/ethical, and cultural values. Two of the units are for primary education, three for secondary education, and one for non-formal education. The fourth chapter concerns assessment and evaluation of students in these areas. Four appendices are included: (1) agenda; (2) list of participants; (3) statement at the inaugural session; and (4) "Humanistic, Ethical, and Cultural Values in Education" (speech given by Dr. Leonard de la Cruz).
