The report presented here, the result of a workshop in Bulgaria with the cooperation of Bulgarian educators, provides information on the educational system of that country, primarily for use in student placement in U.S. schools. A brief introductory chapter gives background information on the country, its geography, resources, population, and history. The second chapter outlines the country's educational history, with emphasis on changes since 1990. Chapter 3 describes preschool and elementary, and in more detail, secondary education. Chapter 4, on higher education, provides some recent history and information on administration, financing, faculty, institution types, admission, academic year, credentials awarded, examinations, grading, credits, transfer, student records, foreign students, and adult and continuing education. A chapter is devoted to specialized and professional curricula in a number of disciplines. Guidelines for United States college admissions officers concerning placement and recognition of credentials are offered in Chapter 6. Appended materials include a list of higher education institutions, sample record forms and documents, notes on the National Council on the Evaluation of Foreign Educational Credentials, a Bulgarian-English glossary, key to Cyrillic transliteration, and a brief bibliography.
