The present bulletin on education in France is another in the Office of Education's long established series on education in other countries. France is of particular interest because of its strong educational traditions and its dedication to democratic principles. In the process of gathering information for this study, the author visited schools in France, interviewed teachers and other school officials, and analyzed materials published in France as well as those in the United States. The second part of the document, presented here, contains the following: (1) Vocational education--historical background, enrollments, "Cours Complementaire"--vocational sections, apprenticeship centers, trade schools ("Ecoles de Metiers"), national vocational schools, technical secondary school ("College Technique"), technical sections in academic secondary schools, new certificates, agriculture and home economics, vocational guidance, vocational teachers and their training, and changes since World War II; (2) Higher education in France--autonomy of the university, enrollments, democratization of higher education, methods and content, failure rate and examinations and certificates, widening scope of offerings, science, science research, engineering, specialized schools--"Grandes Ecoles," business administration and commerce, agriculture, law, medicine, and developments in higher education; and (3) Other forms of education--new media of instruction, correspondence courses, and adult education. It is hoped that the present study will be of particular value in providing a broader understanding of American education through knowledge of the educational traditions of another country. A bibliography is included. Individual chapters contain footnotes. (Contains 16 tables.) [Due to its size, this volume has been processed as two separate parts. The first part (ED544096) includes the Foreword through Chapter VI. This second part includes Chapter VII through the Bibliography. The cover page and table of contents are repeated in the second part. Best copy available has been provided.]
