”Innovation in primary education” is the theme of a five-year project in which the 24 member States of the Council for Cultural Co-operation of the Council of Europe are at present taking part. In the late 1970s, under the pressure of growing unemployment and its impact on the social integration of the young, the CDCC devoted its next school project to upper secondary education. All member States were asked to submit a national report on primary education as background information for the Vaduz Conference and for the Council of Europe project in general. In order to give the project an important practical aspect, the Project Group called for the setting-up of a school contact plan to bring into contact about ten schools undergoing comparable types of innovation in different member States.
