Torches in the Night. Educational Experiences in Tanzania and the Ivory Coast.
Muncie, Peter C.
This booklet describes two educational projects financed by the World Bank in cooperation with UNESCO. Tanzania was the site of one project, where agricultural training at the intermediate and farmer levels was the focus. The second project was in the Ivory Coast and involved construction of technical, vocational, agricultural, teacher training and general secondary schools, and an instructional television production center. The parts of the projects treated here are those which have added to the World Bank's experience in educational development: farmer education in Tanzania and instructional television in the Ivory Coast. Each of these programs is described in detail, covering aspects of development, program organization, structure and content, participant reaction, and informal evaluation. The interaction of the programs with each country's cultural background and development process is emphasized. (KSM)
