La Cooperacion Internacional en Educacion: Estudio De La Experiencia Peruana. (International Cooperation in Education: Case Study of the Peruvian Experience).
Educational development in Peru is discussed as part of a series surveying UNESCO's involvement in educational cooperation with developing nations. There are seven chapters to the report, which is written in Spanish. The first chapter describes Peru's national education policy, and discusses how it relates to the country's plan for national development and to the policy for international cooperation in education. Chapters two and three contain detailed descriptions of international projects undertaken between 1968 and 1979. Chapter four describes the national plan for educational development in 1977-1978. A description and analysis of international cooperation at the university level is contained in chapter five. Chapter six discusses the educational priorities of the country. Included among the priorities are: expansion of their basic education program (involving children from the ages of six to 15 years), with emphasis on correcting regional inequalities; the introduction of educational components into rural education projects; and the strengthening and consolidation of already existing scholarly institutions so that they can better train youth for employment. The last chapter summarizes the report. (Author/RM)
