International Education Year, 1970: Education in Rural Areas in the Asian Region.
Chickermane, D. V.; And Others
A general review of the progress of education in rural areas in the Asian region precedes articles from various countries. It is noted that the physical geography of the Asian region as a whole and the social conditions which prevail therein make up a panorama of variety and complexity which taxes the imagination and the ingenuity of those who seek to bring the benefits of education to Asian young people. The review analyzes, as far as is possible with the limited data available, the quantitative and qualitative educational attainment in rural areas of the region. Individual articles deal with ungraded lower primary education in India, history of rural education in Japan, education in the rural environment in Laos, sociology of rural education in Laos, educational development in rural areas of Malaysia, rural education in Nepal, rural education in the Philippines, the 4-H education program in Taiwan, rural teacher training in Thailand, and education in rural areas in the Republic of Viet-Nam. A final article deals with 2 prime factors in striving for quality in rural education in general--teacher training and the primary school curriculum--and discusses the concept of the rural school as a community center.
