This case study reports results of research on the extent of nonformal education in Guyana; comparison of commitment in private and public enterprises; and financial support, program organization and management, learners' background and objectives, content and methodology, and evaluation strategy. The first two chapters describe the study's conceptual framework and research strategy that included interviewing nonformal educational organizers in key industries in public and private sectors. Chapters 3-16 analyze 14 institutions and agencies that conduct nonformal education. These include Kuru-Kuru Cooperative College; Critchlow Labour College; Department of Extra-Mural Studies, University of Guyana; Adult Education Association in Guyana; Bladen Hall Multilateral Secondary School; Beterverwagting Community High School; Anna Regina Community High School; Worker Education Coordinating Centre; Agricultural Extension Services; Linden Training Schemes; Linden Evening Institute; Banks DIH; Guyana Sugar Corporation; and Guyana National Engineering Corporation. Each analysis provides this information on the nonformal education program: location and general goals, budgetary support, organization and structure, learning problems and specific goals, content and method, and evaluation. Chapter 17 presents general conclusions. (An introduction in English, French, and Spanish lists characteristics common to all nonformal education programs.) (YLB)
