Peace Education: A World Perspective for the 1990s.
This booklet reports on an international survey of the ministries of education of several countries, conducted in cooperation with the National Board of Education in Sweden. The study sought to assess the status of peace education in various countries in the mid-1980s and again in 1991-92. The questionnaire concentrated on three questions: (1) whether the country had official recommendations for schools that teaching should include questions of peace or "peace education"; (2) whether there were instructional materials for school pupils or manuals for teachers dealing explicitly with peace education; and (3) whether there were recent public discussions on the topic of peace education. Although peace education has emerged as a recognized topic for consideration, the researcher concludes that much remains to be done about instructional materials and planning. (EH)
