Nonformal Education in Development: A Conceptual Analysis.
Nonformal education is explored in the context of development in order to provide researchers with fundamental tools for selecting nonformal educational activities that can provide a framework for analysis. Criteria that can be used to determine nonformal educational activities are identified; development as the setting of nonformal education is described; and identification of variables that have a bearing in nonformal education in development are listed. Empirical research taken from the literature is the basis for the analysis. Outcomes show that there are nonformal types of education that are not included in the term "nonformal education" and that it is necessary to recognize influences that impact the delivery of nonformal types of education. A two step framework for analysis of nonformal education in development is outlined in terms of initiative, change, and program areas. (KM)
