AN EXPLORATORY STUDY OF THE ROLE OF ARMED FORCES IN EDUCATION--IRAN, ISRAEL, PERU, AND TURKEY.
GATES, DAVID F.; HEYMONT, IRVING
AN EXPLORATORY STUDY WAS MADE OF THE EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS OF THE ARMED FORCES OF IRAN, ISRAEL, PERU, AND TURKEY BASED ON PUBLIC DATA AVAILABLE IN THE WASHINGTON, D.C., AREA. THIS STUDY DEALT PRIMARILY WITH PROGRAMS DESIGNED TO RAISE LITERACY AND BASIC EDUCATION LEVELS, TEACH NONMILITARY VOCATIONAL SKILLS, AND FURTHER NATIONAL IDENTITY. THE ARMED FORCES EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS IN EACH COUNTRY WERE EXAMINED WITH REFERENCE TO OTHER NATIONAL MANPOWER PROGRAMS, THE SCOPE AND METHODS OF INSTRUCTION, AND THEIR GENERAL SOCIAL, ECONOMIC, AND POLITICAL EFFECTS. ON THE BASIS OF A COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS, IT WAS TENTATIVELY CONCLUDED THAT THE ARMED FORCES IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES DO REPRESENT A POTENTIALLY EFFECTIVE MEDIUM FOR RAISING EDUCATIONAL LEVELS AND SKILLS AND FOR FURTHERING NATIONAL IDENTIFICATION AND SOCIAL INTEGRATION. FOR MAXIMUM EFFECTIVENESS, SUCH PROGRAMS MUST BE COORDINATED WITH AND INTEGRATED INTO THE NATIONAL DEVELOPMENT PLANS AND MUST SUPPLEMENT THE CIVILIAN EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM. METHODS OF INSTRUCTION NOW IN USE ALSO NEED FURTHER STUDY. FURTURE RESEARCH NEEDS WERE OUTLINED.
