Divided into three sections (evidence, analyses, and conclusions), this book includes the following chapters: (1) Background of the Study; (2) An Overview of Rural Education: (3) Extension Programs in Agriculture; (4) Training Programs in Agriculture; (5) Training for Nonfarm Occupations; (6) Self-Help Approach to Rural Development; (7) The Integrated Approach to Agricultural Development: (8) a Critique of Agricultural Education and Research Systems; (9) a Critique of Training Programs for Nonfarm Rural Skills; (10) Improving the Technologies of Nonformal Education; (11) The Economics of Nonformal Education; (12) Planning, Organization, Management, and Staffing; (13) a Final Recapitulation and Commentary.

La Crise mondiale de l'education, analyse de systemes by Philip H Coombs( Book )

54 editions published between 1768 and 1993 in 6 languages and held by 427 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

El presente libro tiene dos objetivos primordiales. El primero consiste en reunir los hechos básicos de una visible crisis mundial en el terreno de la educación, explicitar las tendencias inherentes a estos hechos, y sugerir los elementos de una táctica a seguir ante ellos. El segundo objetivo está relacionado con el primero, pero va mucho más lejos. Pretende presentar un método para enfocar el sistema de educación, no como una serie de piezas sueltas donde cada faceta es un fragmento aislado, sino como un sistema en el que cada parte actuante emite sus propias "señales" para advertir si la acción conjunto se realiza de forma satisfactoria o no

Educational cost analysis in action: case studies for planners by Philip H Coombs( Book )

37 editions published in 1972 in 3 languages and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document is the second in a series of three documents, which together contain 27 case studies on the uses of cost analysis in educational planning. The case studies are presented to help planners and administrators see how cost analysis can be used to improve the efficiency of their educational systems, or to get the best value existing resources. Topics examined in these eight case studies include the cost of introducing a reform in primary education in the Ivory Coast, the role of cost analysis in the 1962 reform of primary education in Madagascar, the use of educational cost models in planning the extension of compulsory education in Norway, marginal costs for marginal decisions about team teaching in Barbados, the role of cost analysis in planning a teacher-training program in Poland, and the costing of a program for expanded secondary education in Brazil. Other topics consider the use of cost-benefit analysis both as a guide to educational resource allocation in India and as a tool to compare the rates of return to education in Colombia. (Author/DN)

New paths to learning for rural children and youth by Philip H Coombs( Book )

14 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Designed to provide developing nations and government agencies with information on nonformal education, this study presents general guidelines on how to: (1) assess the needs within a given country for rural children and youth; (2) plan effective/economic programs to meet these needs; (3) develop means to evaluate and strengthen such programs; and (4) define the ways in which external agencies can be of the greatest help in program implementation. Limited in scope to nonformal education, out-of-school youth and children, and rural areas of developing nations, the study's data are derived from 12 case studies (11 countries) of nonformal education programs and discussions with knowledgeables in developing countries, government agencies, research institutions, etc. Constituting the core of evidence, the case studies are presented in terms of: (1) a general diagnosis of rural educational needs viewed in a broad social-economic context; (2) an inventory/assessment of existing nonformal education programs addressed to rural children/youth; (3) fuller analysis of selected programs appearing to offer significant lessons for other countries; and (4) critical assessment of both positive and negative program experiences. This report also identifies fundamental concepts, present patterns, critical issues, and the means by which nonformal education programs can be activated. (Jc)

New strategies for improving rural family life by Philip H Coombs( Book )

5 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presented in capsule form for the convenience of busy policy makers, planners, and program managers, this booklet summarizes major findings of a three-year study on practical aspects of rural development, with particular emphasis on ways of alleviating extreme poverty among disadvantaged rural families. Using case studies from Bangladesh, India, Indonesia, South Korea, Sri Lanka, and Thailand as a basis, the report contains sections on the new international consensus, the genesis of the new consensus, getting to know the rural poor, toward better integration, toward greater community participation, the importance of front-line workers, educating villagers for change, new roles for voluntary organizations, some practical next steps, and an epilogue. Stressing that the first "must" for anyone desiring to help the rural poor is to get to know them before deciding on what specific program approach to adopt to meet their needs, the document further suggests that another important requirement is to focus on the whole family. Noting that the family improvement measures in the study (health, nutrition, family planning, etc.) do not in themselves comprise a total rural development strategy, the report emphasizes that these essentials must be part of a broader strategy that also includes strong measures for accelerating rural economic growth.
