With the exception of one essay, the content of this book is a selection of articles from past issues of "Prospects," UNESCO's quarterly review of education. Most of the articles were written in the late 1980s or early 1990s. They identify trends in educational planning and management and explain why planning is more necessary than ever. Following "Introduction: A New Scope for Educational Planning," by Francoise Caillods and Jacques Hallak, articles in part 1 examine new issues for the educational planner: (2) "Teaching/Learning Conditions in Developing Countries" (Francoise Caillods and T. Neville Postlethwaite); (3) "Planning the Quality of Education: Different Information for Different Levels of Decision Making" (Kenneth N. Ross and T. Neville Postlethwaite); (4) "Educational Reform and Planning in the Current Economic Crisis" (Martin Conroy); (5) "The Impact of the Debt Crisis on Education in Latin America: Implications for Educational Planning" (Fernando Reimers); (6) "Education, Work, and Employment in Developed Countries: Situation and Future Challenges" (Henry M. Levin and Russell W. Rumberger); (7) "Management and Administration of Education Systems: Major Issues and Trends" (Benno Sander); (8) "Managing Schools for Educational Quality and Equity: Finding the Proper Mix To Make It Work" (Jacques Hallak); and (9) "The Role of the State in Education" (Juan Carlos Tedesco). Articles in the second part examine the practice of educational planning in different regions: (10) "Educational Planning, Administration, and Management in Africa" (Vinayagum Chinapah); (11) "Educational Planning and Administration in Latin America: From Optimism to Uncertainty" (Fabio M. Bustos); (12) "Review and Prospects of Educational Planning and Management in the Arab States" (Antoine M. Gennaoui); (13) "Commonality among Diversity: A Review of Planning and Administration of Education in Asia" (Cheng Kai Ming); and (14) "Educational Planning and Management in Europe: Trends and Challenges" (Ingemar Fagerlind and Britt Sjostedt). Part 3 discusses the possible evolution of educational planning. Articles include: (15) "Seeking New Paradigms To Plan Education for Development--the Role of Educational Research" (Daniel A. Morales-Gomez); (16) "Educational Planning Problems, Decision Making, and Communication" (Dan Inbar); (17) "Integrated Development of Human Resources and Educational Planning" (Vinayagum Chinapah, Jan-Ingvar Lofstedt, and Hans Weiler); (18) "Does Company Strategy Have Any Lessons for Educational Planning?" (Alain Bienayme); and (19) "Does Education Need Strategic Piloting?" (Sylvain Lourie). References accompany each article and an index is included. (LMI)
