Scope and Content Note

At a special session of the general UNESCO conference, a handful of speakers, including William George Carr and Lionel Jospin, French minister of education, celebrate the anniversary of the 25th anniversary of the UNESCO recommendation concerning the status of teachers. An unidentified speaker considers the success and failures of the recommendation, noting that while many countries have moved forward with the recommendation, the resources devoted to education, including teacher employment, have stagnated. Against the backdrop of the founding of the United Nations, Carr explains how the action was drafted and resolved in a speech very similar to the one included on the audiocassette titled "A common purpose: education status of teachers," which is also part of this collection
