Some committee reports don't just sit on the shelf

Every educational planner today owes a debt of gratitude to philosophers of education in the past.

I was thinking about the report of the Faure Commission, 'Learning to Be", from the early 1970s and the report of the Delors Commission, "Learning: The Treasure Within". How many of today's education projects depend on ideas explored by these UNESCO studies from the past? The students in the UNESCO seminar discussed these reports and their approaches tonight.
