Outline of a Structure of Education in Rural Areas

For your consideration, I am circulating a supplementary document to this address. It contains suggestions for a modified structure of education for rural areas which is briefly as follows: as regards formal education, a primary cycle of seven years (comprising two sub-cycles of 4 years and 3 years successively) is suggested. The first sub-cycle aims at teaching basic communication skills and number operations; the second at practical, prevocational education related to agricultural, rural constructional and manufacturing activities, which will enable school-leavers to engage in productive employment and receive further training on the job.
