United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, Bangkok (Thailand). Asian Centre for Educational Innovation for Development.
Volume 5 in a five-volume portfolio of studies reflecting different facets of the concept of education for rural development comprises two studies on co-operation among development agencies. The first study, "Co-Operation among Various Development Agencies for a Co-Ordinated Approach to Education for Agricultrual and Skills Development and Employment in the Rural Areas of Pakistan," by Muhammad Afzal (Pakistan), points out that disparities among perceptions and priorities of elites and masses, low literacy levels, high drop-out rates, wastage of trained manpower, low mobility of villagers, and migration of manpower from rural areas are the major problems affecting co-operation for a co-ordinated approach to education for agriculture and skills development. Details of a multi-subject institution approach are provided. "Co-Operation between Teachers' Colleges and Up-Country Universities for Community Development," by Arun Preededilok (Thailand), comprises three studies: (1) co-operation between teachers' colleges and a university which aims at strengthening each institution through sharing of resources and specialists; (2) a project in which higher education institutions and related government offices cooperate; and (3) a rural pre-school program which aims to prepare children for school via parents and keeping children at the educational centers.
