The UNRWA/UNESCO Experience in Refugee Education. A Report Submitted to the Danish International Development Agency.
Mortensen, Knud; Wagner, K. D.
Summarizing results of a study of the educational programme developed by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) for Palestine Refugees in the Near East in cooperation with Unesco, the document's specific focus is on aspects of the UNRWA/Unesco programme of interest to others concerned with refugee education. Chapters 1 and 2 provide basic background information and describe the UNRWA/Unesco Educational System. Chapter 3 reviews the programme's development and outlines basic prerequisites for initiation of broad-based educational programmes in emergency camp environments. Chapter 4 is concerned with a discussion of educational planning and decentralization of the planning process. Chapter 5 includes qualitative aspects of school education, basic statistical information, and emphasizes the coherency between school education, in-service teacher training, and supervision. Chapter 6 examines the structure of the supervisory system and focuses on the importance of maintaining such a system, providing guidance to teachers, and assessing teaching performance. Chapter 7 reviews the development of the in-service teacher-training programme and deals with components of its approach to teacher training, with a view to the possibility of applying these components in training programmes in other settings. Chapter 8 presents a summary, conclusions, and general recommendations. (Author/AN)
