Aid to Education: An Anglo-American Appraisal.
The document resulted from a 1965 conference at Ditchley Park, England, which convened to discuss the principles and policies of educational aid, especially in Africa, Asia, and the Caribbean. The conference was based on the idea that the relationship of Britain and the United States with developing countries is becoming increasingly important in education since developing countries must look, in part, to external aid in terms of money, teachers, overseas training places, textbooks and other educational materials, or expert help and advice. In the document, conference proceedings are grouped under the following headings: (1) donors' (Britain, the United States, and the World Bank) programs and policies of educational aid, (2) requirements of recipient countries, (3) general conclusions about priorities and principles of educational aid, and (4) specific suggestions for future Anglo-American cooperation. Appendix I is a discussion of all reports from final plenary sessions of the conference. Among the conclusions from these sessions, it is noted that primary education in developing countries must meet the needs of rural persons by preparing them for satisfying and productive lives whether or not the recipients find wage employment. Three other appendices conclude the document. (AN)
