ADEA/Unesco survey on conditions of teaching and
learning: study on the context of book provision
The ADEA Working Group on Books and Learning
Materials and the UNESCO/Danida Basic Learning Materials Initiative
are seeking book specialists' opinions on a wide range of qualitative
aspects of book provision: on the significance of the book famine, the
kinds of materials that are lacking, aspects of the book chain that
require attention, strategies for fostering a more favourable reading
culture, and ways in which books can be made more accessible.
Although inadequate book provision was identified
at the 1990 Education for All conference in Jomtien as a continuing
barrier, the shortage of relevant, good quality, affordable books continues
to undermine teaching and learning.
The survey does not require answers to all sections,
and it is hoped that people will respond at length with the issues that
particularly concern them. If you would like to take part, please contact
Jonny Baxter at DfID, 94 Victoria Street, London SW1E 5JL, England.
