In fulfillment of the Colombian National Government's educational policy aimed toward improving the rural population's level of living, two fundamental projects have been implemented. These projects have led to the creation of schools, the continuous extension of grades, and the creation of "Concentraciones de Desarrollo Rural." They seek to: (1) provide every child with the opportunity to study until the ninth grade; (2) provide adequate education to children and adults; and (3) improve the living conditions of the rural milieu. These projects require a series of changes--adapting plans and programs to regional and national necessities, providing better trained teachers, and strengthening community development programs. This bulletin describes the educational experiences which have been accomplished in the municipalities of Alpujarra, Dolores, and Trujillo. The objectives, methods, and techniques used in their planning, and their organization are discussed. The appendix lists other institutions involved in rural education giving the type of institution, implementation date, purpose, grade level, funding, and principal national coordination. (NQ)
