THE COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT DIVISION OF ICA AND INTERNATIONAL EDUCATION.
SHIELDS, JAMES J., JR.
IN 1961, JUST BEFORE THE INTERNATIONAL COOPERATION ADMINISTRATION WAS REORGANIZED AS THE AGENCY OF INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT, THIS STUDY INVESTIGATED THE ROLE OF EDUCATION IN INTERGOVERNMENTAL PROGRAMS IN COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT. IT IS BASED ON THE COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT DIVISION'S FILES, ITS PUBLISHED AND UNPUBLISHED REPORTS, DOCUMENTS IN ITS LIBRARY, AND INTERVIEWS WITH ITS WASHINGTON STAFF AND THE FIELD STAFF RETURNING FROM OVERSEAS IN THE SPRING OF 1961. THE ROLE OF EDUCATION IN COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT WAS TRADITIONALLY SEEN AS LITERACY TRAINING, COMMUNITY SCHOOLS, AND FUNDAMENTAL EDUCATION. HOWEVER, THE DIVISION'S WORK WAS BROAD, FUNCTIONING NATIONALLY AND INTERNATIONALLY, AS WELL AS ON THE VILLAGE LEVEL. ITS PROGRAMS WERE CARRIED ON JOINTLY BY TWO NATIONS, OFTEN OF DIVERGENT CULTURES. NEW FORMS AND FUNCTIONS WERE EVIDENT IN THE WORK OF THE COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT ADVISOR, THE NATIONAL TRAINING PROGRAMS FOR DEVELOPMENT PERSONNEL, AND PARTICIPANT TRAINING IN THE UNITED STATES AND THIRD COUNTRIES. IN MANY WAYS, COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT WAS ONE OF INTERNATIONAL EDUCATION'S MOST DRAMATIC TESTING GROUNDS IN THE 1950'S THIS DOCUMENT, ORDER NO. 64-1504, IS A DOCTORAL THESIS, AVAILABLE FROM UNIVERSITY MICROFILMS, ANN ARBOR, MICH.
