|Educational Innovation and Information - Number 097 (IBE, 1998, 8 p.)|
This 48-page brochure is intended to contribute to emergency preparedness in the field of basic education. It is addressed to field practitioners and specialists (as well as non-specialists) who have to set up schools in crisis situations, especially for refugee children fleeing civil strife and war. The guidebook describes how to provide for the recreational and educational needs of children from the outbreak of the crisis until regular basic education can be provided. It also attempts to ensure that at least minimum teaching standards are met. It has been produced by the IBE in collaboration with the UNESCO Institute for Education, UNICEF and UNHCR. A limited number of copies are available free of charge from the Publications Unit, IBE, P.O. Box 199, 1211 Geneva 20, Switzerland.
