Secondary School Alternatives in the Ivory Coast: Considerations.
McAnany, Emile G.
Intended to provide information for Ivorian decision makers, this paper presents an overview of technological alternatives for the delivery of instruction at the post-primary level and their accompanying costs. Five alternatives for regular secondary education as it now exists in the Ivory Coast are reviewed: traditional, audiovisual-traditional, instructional television (ITV), ITV extension of the school (Mexican model), and distance learning. Uses of media in two approaches to terminal education and training programs are suggested, and the Telesecundaria System in Mexico is described in detail. Distance learning in adult formal/nonformal education is also discussed as a means of providing instruction for adults (18 and over) who have finished primary or drop out of secondary, and who wish to complete the first cycle of secondary, as well as for nonformal education or vocational training. Examples from other developing nations are cited, and the viability of this alternative for the Ivory Coast is discussed. A list of references is attached. (BBM)
