Training Teachers for Education in Rural Areas

Education has long been recognised as the key to development and the recent history of developed nations bears witness to this fact. Yet time and time again education of rural communities has had the disturbing effect of triggering off their migration from the land to large towns, without effecting the desired social and economic development of the rural areas. Most people agree that education provides the means for securing a better life, but feel that this latter can only be obtained in large cities and towns.
