Education and Values in Developing Nations examines, in considerable depth, the problems implied by education's lag behind the quantum leaps of technology. It distinguishes the separate challenges of industrialized countries and developing countries, with particular attention, in both instances, the the problem of youth employment. It explores the attitudes and life expectations of young people. It considers the persistence of post-material values, such as self-realization and concern with international relations, and the skepticism toward technology which tends to correlate with such values. It investigates the perceptions of the problems of youth by the larger society. And finally, it offers well-considered and valuable proposals foe educational change.
