"A Better Educational State for Jamaica's Children" describes a preschool program funded almost entirely from the private sector. Teacher training projects are described in "Jordan Teaches the Teachers," an on-the-job training project, and "Botswana Teachers Upgraded," where radio correspondence courses for teachers overcome geographic barriers. "Education for Tommorow" is a UNESCO report on the future of education. "The Provincial Approach" is a positive approach to education in West Sumatra, Indonesia. "Focus on Dropouts" is Judith Spiegelman's profile of an elementary school dropout in Thailand.
