Tauhiduddin Ahmad, Mirza, Comp.
A collaboration between Pakistan's Academy of Educational Planning and Management (AEPAM) and the Harvard Institute for International Development under the Basic Research and Implementation in Developing Education Systems (BRIDGES) led to a conference to present findings carried out by Pakistani researchers as well as BRIDGES consultants. The conference objectives were to analyze the following issues: (1) past policy approaches introduced at the primary level in Pakistan and their outcomes; (2) female education in rural areas with special reference to female access to education and the supply of female teachers and their problems; (3) the feasibility of introducing compulsory primary schooling in Pakistan; and (4) topics such as a staggered school time table, classroom management, and relationship between school and community. Recommendations for the development of national policy on primary education are also reported. An introduction is followed by a summary of the 12 papers, reports from 3 work groups, charts that show the organizational structure of 5 different provinces, a list of the participants, the conference schedule, and the complete text of the papers. Appended are seven tables or lists that provide background information about education in Pakistan. (MLF)
