United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Paris (France).; International Bureau of Education, Geneva (Switzerland).
Both parts I and II of the dossier are collections of selected activities directed toward the deprived young in a developing world. This book, part II, departs from its predecessor in that it takes a more global view of education services to both children and adults in developing countries. Part A discusses the philosophy and scope of the dossier. Part B deals with actual activities and experiences. Its first section describes school programs, including the Bonumbu project in Sierra Leone, the Primary Education Improvement Project in northern Nigeria, and basic education in Benin. The second section involves the integration of learning activities with development oriented projects in health, agriculture, etc. in Ethiopia and Senegal. The third section discusses how institutions can provide enriched learning opportunities by discussing the development of women's and children's programs within the socio-economic structure of the male-dominated society of Comilla, Bangladesh. Health education in Benin and education innovation in the Comoros are discussed in the fourth section, and Section 5 considers unused and under-utilized educational resources in the Ajmer District, Rajasthan, India. The final section of Part B describes efforts to identify educational needs at the village level in six Latin American countries. Part C summarizes problems and issues raised by the articles in the dossier. (DS)
