Rural Youth and Out-of-School Education in Asia. Report of a Regional Seminar (Tagaytay, Philippines, 30 September - 5 October, 1974).
Wijetunga, W. M. K., Comp.
Bringing together the thinking and practical experiences of Asian Member State representatives in the United Nations, this report on Asian rural youth and out-of-school education is derived from a 1974 seminar held in the Philippines. The seminar conclusions and recommendations presented emphasize the following: (1) Potential of Out-of-school Rural Youth; (2) Learning Needs (sensitivity to local environments, youth/community participation in needs identification, and program recognition of the importance of achieving attitudinal changes); (3) Planning Strategies (educational policy conceived as an integral part of total rural development which complements both in- and out-of-school populations); (4) Organization (program coordination to include a national policy making agency, coordination mechanisms at the provincial/district levels, and maximum use of existing local resources); (5) Training (local people to act as program "animators", developing locally productive skills and exploiting employment generation and economic returns); (6) Research (systematic exploration of attitudinal change, effective educational techniques, and cost-benefits); (7) Recognition of and Program Development for the Special Needs of Girls and Women; and (8) International Cooperation (information collection/dissemination and inter-country transfer of experiences, training opportunities, and methodology development).
