Education: Sector Working Paper.
World Bank, Washington, DC.
First in a series of World Bank pamphlets dealing with sectors to which the bank directs its developmental lending, this paper offers perspective on the characteristics, size, and philosophy of the Bank's lending program in education. The pamphlet, consisting of three major parts, first gives a brief view of trends in educational development, pointing out that the increase of enrollments at all levels creates problems of maintaining quality and efficiency in educational systems, growing underemployment for the educated, institutional financial burdens, and a need to properly allocate resources. In part two, bank policy and operations during the fiscal years 1963-71, organization, procedures, and criteria are reviewed. A projection and recommendations for bank policy and operations responding to the changing situation of the '70s are suggested in part three. Besides the established areas of lending, technical, agricultural, teacher training, and improved secondary education, new and increased lending activities will focus on non-formal education and training, more efficient and productive education by means of curriculum reform and the coordinated use of new technologies, and management studies to improve the planning and control of educational systems.
