Africa Adult Education. Chronologies in Commonwealth Countries.
Draper, James A., Ed.
In this document, leading educators from 12 African Commonwealth countries trace the development of adult education in Africa and show how providers of adult education outside the formal education system (including government and nongovernment organizations, trade unions, women's groups, and religious organizations) have met the needs of their nations by providing various types of education and training, including agricultural extension and literacy, health, and political education. The following papers are included: "Introduction" (Edwin K. Townsend-Coles); "Purpose and Method of the Project" (James A. Draper); "Looking Back: Acquiring a Historical Perspective" (James A. Draper); "Botswana" (Frank Youngman); "Ghana" (Miranda Greenstreet, Kofi Siabi-Mensah); "Kenya" (David K. Kirui); "Lesotho" (Lois Anne Sebatane, Bill Moore); "Mauritius" (Prem R. Hurrynag); "Nigeria" (Michael Omolewa); "Seychelles" (Alain Daniel Lucas, Marguerite-Marie Mondon); "Sierra Leone" (Edward D. A. Turay); "South Africa" (Cathy Gush, Shirley Walters); "Tanzania" (Philemon A. K. Mushi, Yosiah D. M. Bwatwa); "Zambia" (Elizabeth Mumba); "Zimbabwe" (Clara Sipiwe Nondo, Evison James Muti); "Observations" (James A. Draper); "Introduction [to a Selected Chronology]" (James A.
