Título: Toward International Cooperation in Education for the Integration of the Americas

The New Development Model

The new model for development emphasizes:

a. competition in an open world economy, enhanced by continuous improvements in productivity;

b. internal political stability through generation of consensus around national objectives and strategies, and legitimated through greater social and economic equity;

c. increased personal security based on a more equitable access to education, health and other elements of social welfare;

d. and higher levels of informed political participation through the expansion of non-governmental organizations (Costin & Vanolli, 1998; Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC), 1992; Schiefelbein & others, 1998).

These objectives have implications for the organization of national education systems. Within each country of the Americas, education could contribute to realization of those social and economic conditions required for stability and consensus. These include increased individual and collective capacity for social organization and economic production and increased equity in access to quality education. Without losing their capacity to respond to national requirements and ambitions, education systems in the Americas could also generate the knowledge and skills required for cooperative effort by the countries of the Americas, as an economic region, and as cultures with common values.30
