This report was written in answer to an inquiry of the International Bureau of Education (IBE). It attempts to answer the questions presented in the IBE questionnaire from the point of view of history, policy making and implementation, and to relate educational activities to pertinent research. As required by the IBE, the survey was limited to the primary and secondary levels of education, excluding higher education; also, as required, attention was focused only on those aspects of the problem that fall within the domain of the educational authorities. The report is based on published documents, scientific articles and research reports. It describes the educational trends in the State of Israel over three decades. In the first decade, educational policy dealt with problems of a quantitative nature. The second decade was devoted to raising the level of education of the deprived segments of the population. The goal of the third decade will be to raise the standard of the whole educational system. (Author/BW)
