Planning Educational Change for the Primary Schools of Colombia: A Briefing.
Dordick, H. S.
The primary aim of this study was to explore ways in which educational planners could improve resource allocation to increase both the quantity and quality of education in Colombia. Technological and operational innovations were sought for improving literacy training, vocational and agricultural education, and teacher training. Since only three months were allocated for this pilot effort, the research concentrated on the advantages that could be provided by the use of educational television for the primary school system. The study found that if educational television is to be really effective, it must be introduced into a system that has not only a good foundation of qualified teachers and administrators, but adequate educational facilities. As a result of this effort the feasibility and need for additional research in this area was revealed. (Author/AWW)
