Education for Rural Development.
Educational Documentation and Information, Year54 n216 1980
Designed to contribute to the study of specific problems and the identification of educational needs in rural development, this annotated bibliography contains 345 entries limited to the period between 1975 and 1979. Subheadings are: General; Development planning; Adult education; Educational programmes and content; Methods: communication, technology, teaching; Schools and colleges; Higher education; Non-formal education. Information on these subjects has not been uniformly distributed, and some aspects are given less importance than others. The general section makes up a quarter of the bibliography. It mainly consists of information on educational needs in terms of the political and economic frameworks of countries or regions, conceptual studies of education in specific political or geographical contexts, and summaries of pilot projects or experimental programmes. The section on methods, which takes up one-sixth of the bibliography, contains comments and proposals concerning the mass media. The section on adult education is comparable to the section on communication (methods). The sections on planning and non-formal education make up about a quarter of the information, with the same amount of space devoted to each. Curricula and teaching, at the three levels of education, are given little space and make up only a small part of the bibliography. (Author/CM)
