Choudhury, M. Khashruzzaman; Obaidullah, A. K. M.
A brief description of the development, implementation, and evaluation of the Outdoor Primary Education project in Bangladesh is presented in this booklet. A description of the development of the current primary education system in Bangladesh along with a description of the reasons that led to the development of the project are briefly provided in Chapter I. The project's objectives are outlined in Chapter II. These objectives were (1) to make primary education interesting and attractive to young students so that the large drop-out rate could be reduced to some extent; and (2) to provide a realistic and practical education for primary school children. Descriptions of the project's curricula materials, the teacher's guide, the resources and financing of the project, and the innovative features of the project are included in Chapters III through V. The attitudes of teachers, guardians, students, and officers regarding the project are summarized and discussed in Chapter VI. A more detailed description of the objectives and activities of primary education in Bangladesh, a list of the schools selected for the project, and a copy of the questionnaire used in an evaluation of the project are given in the annexes.
