This report covering the period 1976-1978 is the most recent in the series of reports prepared for the International Conference of Education held periodically in Geneva, Switzerland, under the auspices of the International Bureau of Education, UNESCO. Part 1 describes the present organization and administration of education in the United States. Separate sections focus in turn on general principles and priorities of American education, its system of educational administration, American educational structure and organization, school curriculum, and teacher education. Part 2 contains a progress report on developments in United States education during the period 1976-78. The first section provides information on trends and new policy orientations resulting from recent federal and state legislation. The second section discusses developments in educational management. Selected statistics on American education and a summary of developments in preschooling, teacher education, curriculum, nonformal education, and major reforms are included in the third section. The fourth section discusses developments in educational research, and the fifth section reports on implementation of previous recommendations of the International Conference on Education. The final section contains appendices, including a brief list of selected references related to education published in the United States during the period 1976-1978. (Author/JM)
