Heijnen, Johannes Daniel
The objectives and functions of the primary school in Tanzania, Africa, are evaluated and analyzed in terms of the agricultural needs and employment of the residents. The document includes discussions on the people, the land, Mwanza Township (the area under study), migration (causes and consequences), influences of primary education on migration, productivity in peasant farming (cotton-growing methods), the Bukumbi credit union, and the Usagara block cultivation scheme. The last chapter presents conclusions on the observable effect of primary education on economic behavior. Maps, charts, and graphs are included in the body of the document. The appendices include statistical data collected and the tests used in the study. [Not available in hard copy due to marginal legibility of original document.] (DB)
