The Organisation of Education in Remote Rural Areas.
Lyons, Raymond F.
Using the findings of two studies carried out in Nepal and Sudan, this report examines the methods and the problems of organizing formal and nonformal education in rural areas. The main aims of the two studies were to collect information on education and administrative performance at district and, where relevant, at regional and national levels, and to analyze that information so as to show how the organizational aspects of education at the local level might be improved. The issues involved in the formulation and implementation of local plans, as well as the respective roles of the national and district authorities, the community, and the school, are discussed as aspects of a decentralized approach to the management of education. The report illustrates the need for district levels of educational administrative systems to play more active parts in the elaboration of programs adapted closely to local needs. This will lead, conclude the authors, to increased relevance of the overall educational system. (Author/MLF)
