An Analysis of Concepts and Techniques Basic to a Proposed Experimental Program of Adult Rural Education in Iraq.
Al-Nassrawi, Mihsin O.
This study proposes a comprehensive long-term program of adult education in rural Iraq to meet the need for extensive rural improvement. The program is designed to meet a need for democratic leadership, and to decrease illiteracy, provide practical farm training, and teach villagers to help themselves. A basis for the program design is Taiwan's successful rural development program. The central feature of the first part of the proposed program is a system of Model Villages (one in each of the fourteen provinces). A village plan will be developed for each of these villages, and the plan will be carried out in four stages over a period of 24 months. The study proceeds to outline the enlarging of the program to cover the whole country, the training of necessary personnel, and the provision of financing for the program. (MF)
