Women, Families and Non-Formal Learning Programs. Program of Studies in Non-Formal Education. Supplementary Paper No. 6.
Paolucci, Beatrice; And Others
Directed to educators in both formal and non-formal systems, policy makers, program planners, and others concerned with social and economic development, this preliminary paper reports a study which examines the role of women and families in social and economic development with the purpose of presenting a family ecological framework for identifying the competencies needed by families to facilitate their social and economic functioning, which would in turn provide a basis for assessing needs and resources for determining non-formal education programs supportive to social and economic development at community and national levels. The report is based on a distillation and summary of primary information (discussions with university colleagues and international scholars), analysis of a considerable body of data which has been assembled and catalogued (published research reports, monographs, and policy statements prepared by governmental and non-government agencies), and a series of group discussions in the United States and Thailand. The four chapters are entitled (1) Family and Development, (2) Contributions of the Family to Human Resource Development: Non-Market Activities of Families, (3) Role and Status of Women in Social and Economic Development, and (4) Summary and Implications for Non-Formal Education Program Planners. A bibliography follows each chapter. (WL)
