Education and Rural Development. The World Year Book of Education 1974.
Foster, Philip, Ed.; Sheffield, James R., Ed.
The 1974 volume of the World Book of Education expresses the extreme imbalance in welfare levels and the educational gap between urban and rural populations. The enormous problems involved range from essential "transformationist" viewpoints to more "gradualist" orientations. The interrelationship of technology, research, education, and organization in the process of reinforcing and improving the situation in the less developed areas of the world is explained. Part I of this book discusses a number of general issues of education and rural development; Part II gives several case studies from Africa (including Francophone Africa, Tanzania, and Kenya), Asia (Mainland China, India), and Latin America.
