Scope and content

English transcription: UNESCO project brings progressive education to Ecuador Primary Schools. An experiment in formative education installed by a UNESCO expert in primary schools in Quito three years ago has achieved gratifying results. By giving more depth to learning in Ecuador's primary grades, when normally only three per cent of students reach secondary school, the progressive method of teaching wich offers more elasticity and initiative, has received tremendous backing from teachers, education authorities, students and parents. Lessons in condensation teach children how rain is formed.

Description: Dans une salle de classe, les enfants sont répartis en groupes et encadrés par un enseignant. Au premier plan, un groupe de filles est rassemblé autour d'une installation de chimie. L'une d'entre elles tient une allumette et s'apprête à commencer l'expérience.
