Case Studies in Non-Formal Education. Program of Studies in Non-Formal Education. Team Reports.
Kleis, Russell; And Others
This team report, one in the series described by SO 008 058, identifies representative cases of certain categories of projects involving nonformal education (NFE) and describes them using fairly uniform elements and a common framework. Nonformal education, as defined for this application, is intentional and systematic, but unlike formal education, subordinates form to mission. Eight "families" of case studies represent a sample from a larger number of possibilities categorized according to the project's mission and its sponsorship. The eight categories include projects for agricultural development, family planning, literacy, health and sanitation, and projects sponsored by colleges, universities, voluntary associations, armed forces, and industry--all taking place in both developed and developing nations. Chapter 1 provides the rationale and methodology used by the study team. Chapter 2 consists of a short listing of cases surveyed, along with abstracts. All of the cases are described more extensively in chapters 3-10. The final chapter synthesizes the families of case studies and makes generalizations that will provide practical lessons for the future of NFE. Appendixes carry supplementary reports. (JH)
