Planning Non-Formal Education in Tanzania. African Research Monographs, 16.
Nonformal adult education in Tanzania includes literacy classes, rural extension, community development, training within industry (TWI), civil service inservice training courses, correspondence and evening courses, residential adult education (Kivukoni College,) and women's groups other than literacy classes. Provisions for nonformal education reflect economic and social demands, and follow the generally un-connected initiatives of different ministries and institutions in government, private industry, the rural sector, and urban centers. Data on expenditures, the discrepancies between enrollments and attendance, training and development personnel and their regional distribution, civil service course graduates in different fields, and related matters suggest a need for fuller national planning and coordination, cooperation at the regional and project levels, selection of priorities on an economic basis, a centrally organized system of business and industrial training, and, perhaps most of all, integrated action in personnel training and distribution. (Eight tables are included.) (ly)
