Fundamental Education

    Article metrics


    IN 1947 the United States National Commission for Unesco constituted a Panel on Fundamental Education to consider how the propcals set out in the Unesec book "Fundamental Education—Common Ground for all Peoples", could be applied in the United States. The panel meets under the chairmanship of Mr. John W. Studebaker, the Commissioner for Education, and is composed of specialists in many fields concerned with fundamental education who are broadly representative of various public and private agencies and associations throughout the country. Its first bulletin, called "Fundamental Education", has now been issued and provides important technical information both on the way in which the Unesco Secretariat may carry out the international project and also on the way the development of fundamental education in the United States may be encouraged. Copies of the bulletin may be obtained from the Superintendent of Documents, U.S. Government Printing Office, Washington.
