Office of Education, US Department of Health, Education, and Welfare
On June 8, 1955, Dr. Alina M. Lindegren of the United States Office of Education, arrived in Bonn for a 6-week educational visit to the Federal Republic of Germany. When she mentioned that she had been on a similar mission to Germany in 1935 she was told, "Much has, happened since then. We believe you will find many changes." Much had happened - World War II and a decade of postwar recovery. In the following pages the author tells of some of the changes in education which she saw or felt. The purpose of this Bulletin is to note the changes or trends in education in the Federal Republic of Germany as seen or felt in 1955 by one who, 20 years before in 1935, had similar firsthand contact with education in Germany. Reference to education in other periods is made to the extent necessary for an understanding and appreciation of the significance of the changes made or in progress. A bibliography is provided. (Contains 6 graphs and 45 footnotes.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
