Toprakci, Erdal
Online Submission, International Journal of Progressive Education v3 n1 p65-86 Feb 2007
This study focuses on the rate of the participation of the member countries in the objectives of UNESCO. Text-based approach in method of content analysis has been used to carry out the study. The objectives of UNESCO have been identified and examined to reveal whether the member countries acknowledge these objectives among their national educational objectives. The study is limited with the data available on the UNESCO Web Page (World Data on Education of UNESCO). It has been found that only 5 of the member countries have fully adopted the objectives of UNESCO, which means that the national educational objectives of the remaining 97% of the member countries do not fully reflect UNESCO's objectives in their education policies. The most highly participated objectives are "Equality" with 56.05%, "Human Rights" with 35.03%, "Freedom" with 25.47%, "Universal Values" with 19.10% and finally "Peace" with 15.28%. This situation may put UNESCO's existence into danger in the future, and may cause serious doubts about its activities and its future success. (Contains 1 note and 8 tables.)
