BURNS, DONALD G.
FURTHER EDUCATION IN AFRICAN COMMONWEALTH COUNTRIES INCLUDES MOST OF THE AVAILABLE EDUCATION FOLLOWING COMPLETION OF PRIMARY OR SECONDARY SCHOOL. TECHNICAL EDUCATION IN TRADE CENTERS PROVIDES TRAINING IN BRICKLAYING, CARPENTRY, MACHINE FITTING, AND MOTOR MECHANICS. TECHNICAL INSTITUTES PROVIDE A THREE-YEAR SUPERVISED CERTIFICATION TRAINING PROGRAM FOR SECONDARY SCHOOL GRADUATES. SOME INSTITUTIONS OFFER PART-TIME OR EVENING PROGRAMS COORDINATED WITH INDUSTRIAL TRAINING AND A VARIETY OF COURSES IN COMMERCIAL SUBJECTS, COOKING, TEACHER TRAINING, BAKING, AND LIBRARY WORK MAY ALSO BE INCLUDED. GOVERNMENT DEPARTMENTS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANIMAL HUSBANDRY, AGRICULTURAL, AND FORESTRY EDUCATION FOR STAFF MEMBERS. LOCAL EVENING CLASSES INCLUDE COURSES IN RECREATIONAL ACTIVITIES, COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT, AND DRESSMAKING. THE UNIVERSITIES OFFER A FEW CLASSES AT OR NEAR THE LEVEL OF UNIVERSITY STUDIES. ALL COUNTRIES ARE MAKING A MASSIVE ATTACK ON ILLITERACY. THERE SEEMS TO BE A NEED FOR A ESTIMATE OF FUTURE NEEDS AND FOR AN OVERALL PLAN TO MAKE INSTRUCTION MORE GENERALLY AVAILABLE.
