The Formulation of Human Resources for Farming and Household Work as Vocations: Lessons for Less Developed Countries.
Bowman, Mary Jean
Economics of Education Review, v10 n1 p1-5 1991
Urban-biased perspectives have distorted debates concerning agriculture in rural schools of less developed countries (LDCs). Pervasive measurement biases have rendered women's household labor invisible in LDCs and treated their vocational preparation as inconsequential. Early American land-grant college research, education, and extension services can offer LCDs some positive lessons. (three references) (MLH)
