The Comparative Functionality of Formal and Non-formal Education for Women. Report on Phase I.
Derryck, Vivian Lowery
This paper reports on phase one of a study to ascertain whether formal or nonformal education is more effective in accelerating the integration of women into development activities in developing countries. It is based on the premise that women need more and better credentials to gain social, economic, and political acceptance in less developed countries. The report is presented in five parts. Part I identifies personnel from the Agency for International Development (AID), other agencies, and international organizations who are concerned with the issue of female education in developing countries. Part II relates representative projects and studies dealing with women and education in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Near East. Part III assesses interest in an interagency forum of meetings to discuss operational, not theoretical, problems related to women, education, and development. Part IV suggests steps by which the Women in Development office of AID can maximize its impact on AID educational policy. Part V summarizes major points covered in the report. (Author/AV)
