Building New Educational Strategies to Serve Rural Children and Youth.
Coombs, Philip H.; Ahmed, Manzoor
Summarizing the International Council for Educational Development's (ICED) second report on the study of nonformal education for rural youth and children, this draft of the second report outlines the substance of each chapter and the main findings, conclusions, and recommendations. This summary does not include the detailed evidence, illustrations, references, etc. which will be included in the final draft. The initial chapter presents an overview of the problems confronting the rurally deprived youth and children of the world and outlines strategies for rural education. The next three chapters examine possible alternative approaches to particular categories of learning needs (basic general education; occupational education, and civic education). The analysis then turns to a series of interrelated issues and problems that cut across all kinds of nonformal programs and converge at the vortex of planning and evaluation. Chapter V views these issues and the process of planning and evaluation from the vantage point of a manager of a single educational program. Chapter VI broadens the perspective and views these and other issues in the context of a strategy aimed at fusing various educational programs and related development activities into a more cohesive and effective whole-area by area and nationwide. Chapter VI also envisages as a guiding concept the progressive emergence of a comprehensive, highly diversified, and increasingly unified "rural learning system" that can serve people of all ages and development objectives of many kinds.
