Monrovia Consolidated School Project.
San Francisco State Coll., CA.
In 1961, San Francisco State College was selected by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) to provide a contract group of educational technicians for Liberia in order to reorganize the administration and improve the educational system in the city of Monrovia. During the past 8 years, the College has provided 51 members of its faculty to the contract team, and advanced training has been provided on the College campus for 79 Liberians. The program has had two primary objectives: to assist in the development of a charter which would legally establish an intermediate level of school administration, and to train Liberian educators to administer and staff this intermediate unit. An on-going program of inservice education and instructional materials development has also been set up. Funds for the project were provided by USAID. (The program description includes the following supporting materials: "A Consolidated School System for Monrovia, Liberia--1961 Survey"; "Your Schools," a 1963 report of the problems and plans for future growth and development to meet Monrovia's and Liberia's educational needs; "Monrovia Consolidated School System Staff Analysis Study"; "Student Health Survey of Monrovia Consolidated School System.")
