In recent years there has been a marked increase in the output of literature linking economics with education. In the past, most of the professional literature in this area dealt either with educational finance (the economics of education) or, in a general way, with the role of education in economic development. Current literature continues to deal with these two fields, but in such a way as to introduce a new field, or at least to direct attention to new uses for materials developed in the two fields. This bulletin explores the development of a new field that ascribes a causative role to education in the development process. Document contents include: (1) Introduction; (2) Testing the basic assumptions--a conceptual problem; (3) Human technology--developing human technology, and the role of education; (4) Educational problems; (5) Specific problem areas--literacy, language problems, compulsory education, specialized training, teacher training, education of women, the role of private education, part-time and correspondence education, curriculum development, and team teaching and community development; and (6) Summary. (Contains 15 footnotes.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
