Communication and Information Needs for Effective Administration of the Bolivian System of Public Instruction: A Report and Design.
Garret, Max Mehlis; Rorex, A. Rexford
The administrative information and communication system for public education in Bolivia has been a matter of concern to the authors for several years. This report is the outgrowth of that concern. Part 1 describes the present communications/information system and concludes that there is a weak infrastructure together with a total lack of integration in educational administration communication at the national, district, and local levels. Part 2 addresses the requirements for an effective system for Bolivia including the need to bring urban and rural schools into a common communication network. Part 3 presents a series of recommendations for restructuring and strengthening the nation's communication/information system. Both technological and organizational changes are indicated. Some requirements for successful implementation are also presented. (DGC)
