Fundamental Education. Bulletin, 1948, No. 13
Office of Education, Federal Security Agency
UNESCO is the abbreviation commonly used for the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural organization, of which 42 countries are now members. The purpose of Unesco, as set forth in its Constitution, is "to contribute to peace and security by promoting collaboration among the nations through education, science and culture in order to further universal respect for justice. Thus, at the request of the Commission's Committee on Program Assignments, a Panel on Fundamental Education was constituted in 1947 under the chairmanship of the Commissioner of Education. This panel is composed of specialists in many fields concerned with fundamental education, who are broadly representative of various public and private agencies and associations throughout the country. With the purpose of stimulating world-wide efforts to wipe out illiteracy as a first step in raising standards of living and establishing a democratic foundation for international understanding, Unesco is including a program of fundamental education among its initial projects. This bulletin is divided into three parts: (1) A Definition of Fundamental Education; (2) The Elements of Fundamental Education; and (3) The Organization of Fundamental Education Programs. Individual sections contain footnotes. [Best copy available has been provided.]
