Education and Rural Development: Issues for Planning and Research. Report on an IIEP Research Project.
Berstecher, D., Ed.; And Others
This book is the final outcome of a research project begun in 1981 by the International Institute for Educational Planning under the title, "Planning and Management of Formal and Nonformal Education within Integrated Rural Development Projects." Part 1 reports the concluding 1984 Nepal seminar to pinpoint the real role of education as a force of rural development and establish relevant issues for future educational planning/research. Chapter I elaborates distinctions between four rural development approaches: production-orientation, equating rural development with alleviation of poverty, viewing rural development as the total of separate projects, and long-term transformation based on mobilization of the peasantry. Chapter II addresses problems/dimensions of integration in rural development. Chapter III reviews discussions of the role of education in rural development. Chapter IV considers components of diversified basic education. Chapter V reviews needs/directions of future research and lessons for improved educational planning/management. Part 2 presents three case studies on education for integrated development. The Ethiopian study analyzes reality behind the term "integration" in rural areas and assesses behavioral/attitudinal outcomes of different forms of education. The Indian study is a detailed assessment of two projects with a strong element of nonformal education. The Bangladesh study examines literacy levels and school education as an explanatory but also dependent variable in the context of social/economic factors relevant to rural development. (NEC)
