AN ANALYSIS OF UNESCO'S CONCEPT AND PROGRAM OF FUNDAMENTAL EDUCATION.
WODAJO, MULUGETA
THROUGH ANALYSIS OF UNESCO DOCUMENTS, THE MEANING, SCOPE AND CONTENT OF FUNDAMENTAL EDUCATION--A PROGRAM TO IMPROVE THE LIVING CONDITIONS OF THE ECONOMICALLY UNDERDEVELOPED COUNTIRES THROUGH EDUCATION AND SELF-HELP--AND SOME OF UNESCO'S MAJOR PROJECTS WERE EXAMINED. THE PROGRAM PASSED THROUGH FOUR DISTINCT PERIODS--(1) 1945-1950, LAYING THE THEORETICAL GROUNDWORK OF FUNDAMENTAL EDUCATION, (2) 1951-1955, CARRYING OUT PROJECTS AND INAUGURATING TWO REGIONAL FUNDAMENTAL EDUCATION CENTERS, (3) 1956-1960, REEXAMINING THE PROGRAM IN THE LIGHT OF THE UNITED NATIONS' PROGRAM IN COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT, AND (4) 1961-, ATTEMPTING TO DISASSOCIATE ITSELF FROM ITS CENTERS AND GENERALLY WITHDRAWING FROM THE FIELD IN FAVOR OF THE UNITED NATIONS' COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT AND VOCATIONAL EDUCATION PROJECTS. MOST OF THE ORGANIZATIONS'S FUNDAMENTAL EDUCATION PROJECTS WERE TOO AMBITIOUS TO BE MANAGEABLE. BOTH THE RISE AND DECLINE OF FUNDAMENTAL EDUCATION WERE A REFLECTION OF THE IDEOLOGICAL FORCES OF THE PERIOD. THE STUDY SHOWS THE OBSTACLES, FINANCIAL AND ADMIINSTRATIVE, WHICH UNESCO FACED IN CARRYING OUT ITS PROGRAMS AND REVEALS UNESCO'S IMMENSE CONTRIBUTION TO FUNDAMENTAL EDUCATION AND THROUGH IT, TO INTERNATIONAL EDUCATION, ESPECIALLY IN ENRICHING THE LITERATURE IN THE FIELD.
