Some of these studies are condensed and discussed in this issue.

Varghese; "Allocating Resources for Education in Latin America," by Alejandro Morduchowicz and Juan Carlos Tedesco; "Privatization in Latin America--A Long and Ambiguous History," by Alejandro Morduchowicz; "Evaluating Training Programmes for Disadvantaged Groups," by Claudia Jacinto; and "A Taste of Mountain Life: ATP Trainees Visit the Dauphine Region in France," by Pierre Runner.
