Conference Proceedings & Collected Papers

During the past decade the role of non-formal education throughout the world has become an important topic. Educators realize that the formal system cannot solve the diversified and complex problems which face a society today. As a consequence a closer look is now being taken at educational activities outside the established system--especially those non-formal processes which have a relationship to socio-economic development.

While many societies have a long tradition of non-formal education, little attempt has been made to utilize this base to provide individuals with a flexible and diversified range of useful learning opportunities. Recently, however, the innate potential of ...

Image And Reality: Career Goals Of Educated Ugandan Women, David Evans

Center for International Education Faculty Publications

This paper presents an initial exploration of the relationship between the employment and the training of women in the context of a single African country, Uganda. It begins with an analysis of the present and projected employment picture for women in relationship to the number of secondary school girls. The analysis then focuses on job aspirations and expectations of girls in secondary schools, at both the lower and higher school level. Differences between expectations and probable opportunities are discussed and related to certain differences in secondary schools.

The Federal Role In Aiding American Elementary And Secondary Schools, Jay Martin Russek Jan 1970

The Federal Role In Aiding American Elementary And Secondary Schools, Jay Martin Russek

Masters Theses 1911 - February 2014

Federal policy with regard to elementary and secondary education has developed slowly over the history of the country. This has happened because the conflicts involved are considerable and difficult to overcome in such a fashion as to make the results acceptable to all parties willing in principle to support some form of federal participation. Until recently, the literature has centered on the study of specific factors which help to explain the cause and trend of events. In order to explain developments in this field, however, it ought to be perceived as an overall policy making process. Although much of this ...

The Use Of Graphical Analysis In Education Planning, David Evans Jun 1968

The Use Of Graphical Analysis In Education Planning, David Evans

Center for International Education Faculty Publications

This paper discusses the use of graphical techniques as tools of analysis and projection in planning the growth of an educational system. Graphs are shown to be particularly valuable when used to investigate the implications of alternate growth patterns for various aspects of the school system. The technique is intended to precede and augment the usual forms of statistical analysis. Reasons are suggested why graphs are particularly appropriate to the rapidly growing educational systems in developing countries.
