Developing Population Awareness Education in the Developing World.
The importance of population education is discussed in terms of under populated as well as over populated countries. Its purpose is defined as to develop awareness, and understanding of the relations between population growth and national development, and an understanding of personal responsibility. It is suggested that population concepts should be infused throughout the school program. Examples of this approach are given relating to art, biology, family life programs, language arts programs, mathematics, and social sciences. Evidence is cited that population education should be given early in the school program. Problems of program design are discussed, suggesting areas where research is needed. Programs developed in several Asian countries are described. [Not available in hardcopy due to marginal legibility of original document.] (EB)
