School Supervision in Four African Countries. Volume II: National Diagnoses--Botswana, Namibia, Tanzania, Zimbabwe. Trends in School Supervision.
De Grauwe, A., Ed.
This publication forms the second volume of a report on a study of the school supervision system in four African countries. (The research is part of a larger series of studies sponsored by UNESCO and the International Institute for Educational Planning.) The countries studied were Botswana, Namibia, Tanzania, and Zimbabwe. The study examined the role played by individual supervisors and supervision services provided by national education departments and regional authorities. Volume 2 presents the four national diagnoses undertaken as part of the study. Specifically, this volume presents for each of the four countries: (1) a general overview of supervision and support structures; (2) basic facts and critical issues regarding the management of supervision services; (3) a case study of daily operation of supervision and support services in a selected district; and (4) an overall assessment of supervision and support services. The basic information is supplemented by numerous tables, charts, and lists. (WFA)
