Education Development Center, Inc., Newton, MA.
The African Primary Science Program, which was established in 1960 as part of the African Education Program, has operated widely in English-speaking African countries. Science centers have been established with program assistance in seven of these: Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Tanzania, and Uganda. Its goals have been centered on changes in pedagogy, but it has also sought to influence the role of education in developing countries. The report records and documents the Program's development, its changing structure, and its efforts to respond to the needs of the countries involved and developing African initiative. (NTIS)
