Participation, Learning and Change. Commonwealth Approaches to Non-Formal Education.
Fordham, Paul, Ed.
The six-chapter book highlights the main issues and findings of the 1979 New Delhi Conference on Non-formal Education for Development. Chapter 1 defines non-formal education, discusses development needs, and discusses motivation at the political, operational, and participatory level. Chapter 1 includes two case studies of non-formal education in Tanzania and Botswana. Chapter 2 describes four target groups for non-formal education: children outside school, unemployed youth, adult illiterates and new literates, women and girls. It discusses vocational training needs of women, includes case studies, and describes Jamaica's JAMAL Program. Chapter 3 discusses program planning for non-formal education, curriculum development for school-aged children, methods and media, and training for policy makers and planners. The chapter presents a model curriculum for non-formal education of village children. Chapter 4 discusses the research and evaluation of non-formal education using traditional research, action research, and participatory research. Chapter 5 uses four case studies to discuss operational problems of non-formal education. Chapter 6 discusses the coordination, resources, and financing of non-formal education. In addition to a complete list of conference papers, a bibliography includes suggestions for further reading about the subject. (SB)
