EKISTICS [OIKIETIKH]: The Problem and Science of Human Settlements, Volume 41, Number 246, May 1976. Education.
Bell, Gwen, Ed.
Articles related to educational planning in developing nations are presented. This issue of the journal of the World Society for Ekistics reviews environmental and settlement education programs which offer a wide variety of new approaches. Topics discussed include becoming a planning society; challenges, dilemmas, and strategies of ekistics education; and major objectives of educational policies in developing nations. Dealing generally with the problem of synthesizing knowledge, the articles on educational programs discuss environmental education programs in developing countries and interdisciplinary approaches to educational planning. Two articles emphasize the design of model educational systems--one in Nigeria and the other in non-Western nations. Another article describes the necessity to develop skilled manpower for building and planning at the local level. The remaining articles report on the feasibility and accomplishments of training courses in developing nations. Also discussed are recent widespread concerns of educational policy in developing nations, such as women, economic productivity, and urban-rural differences, as well as literacy education. Tables, photographs, and references are included. (Author/DB)
