The A.I.D. Education Program Strategy.
Agency for International Development (Dept. of State), Washington, DC.
The central role of education in national development, clearly recognized by developing countries and by development assistance agencies, is to decide what kinds of education should be provided for which people and at what costs, and to help attain objectives of national development. The collateral issue of deciding how the resources of the Agency for International Development (AID) is discussed. The content is threefold. First, an examination of some of the indices, evidence and trends of educational development during the past decade are considered. Secondly, a review of some of the more important AID activities in education during that same period establishes a general profile of priorities. Finally, basic concepts, principles, and actions which can guide AID in its educational activities of the 1970's arise from an analysis of AID investments in education and an AID strategy in education. Ten statistical tables of financial obligations for the 1960's and 1970's are appended. (Author/KSM)
