Economic Studies and Out-of-School Education Program Evaluation for the Ivory Coast. Final Report.
Grant, Stephen; And Others
This report is a final one in a series of 17 reports concerned with costs analysis/projections of the instructional television program and the Out of School Television (OSTV) project in the Ivory Coast. It includes an introduction to the OSTV project after its first five years of existence, a description of the main elements of the in-school reform, an outline of the progression of OSTV objectives, examples of the subject matter covered in OSTV broadcasts (Tele Pour Tous), and an explanation of the role of the primary school teachers serving as animators for OSTV. The series of reports on the OSTV program are discussed in the context of a "social impact model," and each of the economic studies performed as part of this project is summarized under the appropriate educational level--costs relating to primary schooling, cost implications for secondary education, and cost analyses for out of school education. Recommendations for action are presented for each level, with the OSTV recommendations categorized by order of magnitude: those designed to improve operations and impact without incurring any sizeable further resources, those which require a significant increase in resources, and those which demand higher decisions and a greater commitment by the government. A bibliography of project and related reports includes some titles in French. (Author/JEG)
