The second of two volumes, this report reviews the state of the art of training for educational personnel and presents recommendations to reform training programs in Afghanistan, Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan, and the Philippines. The introductory chapter considers factors involved in children's failure in primary school. The next chapter summarizes current opportunities for schooling and teacher education programs for disadvantaged groups and suggests improvements in the preparation of primary teachers. The third chapter lists the goals of future training programs with regard to the following areas: supervisors' abilities to plan and guide educational activities and teachers' mastery of subject matter, communication skills, pupil/teacher relations, community involvement, and analysis and amelioration of learning problems. Also enumerated are 17 suggested inservice training workshops and long-distance programs to improve current teaching and supervisory skills and parent understanding. The final chapter presents guidelines for planning workshops and describes six pilot workshops currently proposed for these countries. (CB)
