The Major Project in the Field of Education stresses renewed and intensive efforts by Latin American and Caribbean Island countries to provide the resources and training necessary to meet basic education needs by the year 2000. This document examines project achievements, innovations, and problems through 1986 in the areas of rural education, adult education, bilingual education, and teacher training. Arvelio Garcia discusses the changes and expansion of rural education and literacy programs in "Experiences of Educational Innovations: Cuba, Ecuador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica." In "Progress in Bilingual Education in Costa Rica during 1986," Massimo Amadio and Guillermo Segura describe efforts to promote education appropriate to Costa Rica's linguistic and cultural characteristics. Jose Rivero, in "Adult Education in Latin America: Requirements and Strategies for the Training of Staff," discusses: (1) the current status of adult education; (2) crisis policies and strategies; and (3) teacher training, while Felix Chaparro describes "Alternatives in Basic Education for Adults." The concepts of appropriation, control, resistance, negotiation, and reproduction in relation to primary schools are considered by Justa Ezpeleta in "School and Teachers: Half-Way between Hypothesis and Deductions." A list of UNESCO Latin American and Caribbean region activities, meetings, and workshops is included. (JHP)
