Marsick, Victoria J., Ed.; And Others
This document reports on an international meeting under the auspices of World Education, Inc., concerning adult literacy and family life planning. The consultation attempted to study and assess progress achieved by various organizations in Thailand, the Philippines, and Indonesia in the area of concern. The Bangkok Consultation emphasized materials and methods being developed for these programs. The concept and methodology of functional education for family life planning was first considered, followed by a discussion of the preparation of written and audio-visual materials, and new ideas in using visual aids to promote literacy. Additionally, teacher training, program evaluation, and the role of international organizations in adult literacy programs for family life planning were discussed. Finally, country teams reviewed or formulated programs, with a view toward clarifying plans and objectives. This report also discusses the "why" and the "how" of combining adult literacy education with family life planning. Finally, the report looks to the future of these programs in the light of the experience brought out through the consultation. Appendices A through G give details of the consultation report.
