Analysis of Teacher Education in East Africa, 1969. A Report.
Draper, Dale C.; And Others
In order to analyze teacher education in East Africa, the three-man survey team studied schools and agencies producing teachers and programs for schools, focusing on four factors: preservice and inservice teacher education, production and improvement of instructional materials, and financing of programs. The team examined the specific primary and auxiliary agencies engaged in primary, secondary, and teacher education and consulted appropriate persons inside and outside these agencies. The problems identified fall into these categories: shortage of qualified teachers, tutors, and specialists in the areas of research and production of instructional materials; need for improvement of leadership at many levels; inadequate local financing; and need for firm goals and policy on expansion of primary and secondary education in two of the three countries. Requirements for meeting these needs and obstacles which have blocked or retarded implementation efforts were analyzed. (Specific suggestions for Agency for International Development (AID) assistance and broad cost implications are included in the report's six sections: Primary and Secondary School Education, Teacher Education Programs, Curriculum Development and Instructional Materials, Staffing Teachers Colleges, Resources Available and Projected Requirements, and Priorities in Teacher Education. Survey team itinerary in the U.S., Kenya, Uganda, and Tanzania is appended.) (JS)
