Lakin, Michael, Ed.
This report attempts to present the main issues that emerged in the discussion during the four topical sessions and three roundtables of the second meeting of the International Consultative Forum on Education for All. The Forum reflected the widespread dissatisfaction over the irrelevance and poor quality of much basic education today, as well as the concern that expansion of basic education provision must not, and need not, lead to a lower quality of learning. The Forum's deliberations may be useful to policymakers and professionals concerned with development and with basic education. The volume contains the following topics for discussion, roundtables and annexes. Part 1, "Quality Education for All," lists the following topics: (1) "Early Childhood Development"; (2) "Improving Primary Schooling"; (3) "Improving Nonformal Primary Education"; and (4) "Financing Quality Basic Education." Roundtables include the following: (1) "Basic Education for Girls and Women"; (2) "New Partnerships for EFA"; and (3) "Education and the Media." The appendices include: (1) "Forum Programme and List of Documents"; (2) "Keynote Speech by Federico Mayor"; and (3) "List of Participants." (EH)
