A Functional Literacy Project in Selected Establishments in Amman.
Ministry of Education, Amman (Jordan).
A pilot project will be established in the city of Amman, Jordan, and its outskirts. Guidelines include: (1) Project activities should be centered around functional literacy; (2) Efforts should be directed to persons engaged in productive activity; (3) The curriculum should be oriented towards the specific work in which the worker is engaged; (4) The project should be the shared responsibility of the Ministry of Education and the industrial establishments. A pre-project survey determined the number of industrial workers to be about 20,000. Two questionnaires were used in the survey. One was addressed to the employer and was designed to obtain data about the total number of employees, the nature of industrial activity, the number of illiterate workers, and the location of the company. The second questionnaire was directed at the illiterate worker and aimed, through an interviewer, to obtain personal information about the worker and to determine whether the literacy center should be located in the industrial establishment or near the residence of the worker.
