Textbooks in the Developing World: Economic and Educational Choices. EDI Seminar Series.
Farrell, Joseph P., Ed.; Heyneman, Stephen P., Ed.
This book is a collection of 16 papers that focus on what has been learned in two decades of developing and implementing large-scale national textbook programs. The seminar was designed to help participants make sound policy decisions about their own national textbook programs and to facilitate discourse among a wider audience of parties working to improve the quality of education in developing nations. Organized into four parts, the part headings include: (1) The Design and Implementation of Textbook Programs: An Overview; (2) Policy Issues in Textbook Program Development; (3) Provision of Textbooks: Developed Systems and Infant Industries; and (4) The Future: Will New Electronic Media Make the Textbook Obsolete? Many figures and tables are included and several of papers contain a list of references or a bibliography. (DB)
