Colombia Exports Its "New School" Blueprint.
Lopez, Asbel
UNESCO Courier, n6 p14-16 Jun 1999
To compensate for disadvantages of traditional rural schools, Colombia's Escuela Nueva (New School) movement offers solutions such as self-instruction guides geared to aspects of daily life and flexible school schedules. Teacher training that encourages student and community involvement is a key element. Escuela Nueva successes have led to its adoption in other Latin American countries and the Philippines. (SV)
