The books in this series are written primarily for two types of clientele: those engaged in educational planning and administration, in developing as well as developed countries; and those, such as senior government officials and policy-makers, seeking a more general understanding of educational planning and how it relates to national development. They are intended to be of use either for private study or in formal training programmes.
