Ministry of Education, Lisbon (Portugal).; United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Paris (France).
More than a hundred educational specialists from 51 UNESCO member states and non-governmental education attended the symposium for which this document is the final report. The report describes the Interministerial Programme for the Promotion of Educational Achievement in Portugal (PIPSE), together with other examples of national, regional, and local strategies. The report lists various strategies within the administrative and teaching levels that can contribute to the improvement of educational achievement. The report highlights the importance of systematic and continuous social and familial action from early childhood onward, and ties in pre-school education with health, nutrition, and social service programs for the benefit of very young children and their mothers with a continuation of this action up to the stage at which community participation in educational activities is proper. The main conclusion of the report lies in the assertion of the need for global and local strategies that make it possible to coordinate the different actions of the public authorities and secure the commitment of the whole community.
