Four Million Tanzanians To Face
literac? Tosf August TO
AN!" Four .millioh "
adults ;f from .mainland
Tanzania will take a written
literacy test on August 10.
They are among the last
participants in literacy classes
in an adult education cam
paign that is now ten years
old. jl . '$
According to the Minis
try of Education, only a half
million illiterate adults re
main; untouched by classes.
Tanzania has a total popula
tion of over 15 million. A
million and a half adult v
passed the literacy test in
i Tanzania is one of thir
teen countries' in which UNE
SCO, the United Nations
Educational 'Scientific and
Cultural Organization, is ...
operating a pilot projects in
functional literacy.
The urgency of adult
education was underscored
by Tanzanian President
Nyerere not long after in-
dependence. In 1964 he said,
"First we must educate our
adults. Our children will not
have an impact on our
development for five; ten or
even , twenty years. The atti
tude of ' the adult has an
impact now." . v
Adult education in
- Tanzania involves more than
just literacy ' classes. Since
1974, for instance, the pri-,
sons have trained more than
900 prisoners as electricians,
masons, plumbers, painters
and sign makers.
Education for self
reliance is the theme of both
childhood and adult educa
tion in Tanzania, and beyond
primary courses classes are
often linked to job needs.
Workers, some at their work
place, Others at adult edu
cation Renters, have followed
courses leading as high as the
completion of secondary
school, studying before or
after working hours. :
Even at the University
adults called mature candi
, dates who are recommend-y
ed by their employers are
now given priority. Secon
dary school graduates are ex-
Eected to spend a year in the
lational -Service and then '
hold a job ' for a while be
fore being considered for
- the Univerrityyf ?
'lit With l adult ! educa
tion still the primary focus,
Tanzania is not forgetting its
children. ' By this fall there
will be universal primary edu
cation for them as well. ,
As a reeular reader of The Carolina Times news
paper, I wish to congratulate you and your staff for
keeping the public informed on the problems confront
ing our black youths and "quality education". Several
days ago, one of our leading Raleigh newspapers pub
lished the scores of what , our, Jjlack youths had earned
on the National Teachers examinations in compari
son with their white counterparts. Later on, articles
were written about the, SAT scores of black high
school graduates who had entered all of our North
Carolina colleges and universities.; ; .
As a concerned citizen of North Carolina, I think
that is time 5 for all black citizens of North .Carolina
who are interested in elevating their race, not to con
tinue to fet these problems pass by our observations
too lightly. We j cannot let the : news media of this
state keep" on harassing" us that that the black stu
dents of North Carolina can not measure up to their
white counterparts "jon 1 standardized examinations.
There are many questions to be asked. One is: Why
did this happened, in the first place, in this great state
of North Carolina? All -North Carolinians, must ad
mit that: (1) It was the church colleges like Shaw
University , (Baptist); Saint " Augustine's College
(Episcopal); Livingstone College (Methodist); John-.
, son C, Smith; (Presbyterian); Bennett, Kittrell and-Barber-Scotia
colleges that did an excellent job in
bringing, the Negro out of ignorance after slavery. The
Constitution stated that education of its citizens is the
' sole responsibility of the state. North Carolina did not
make any efforts to spend large sums pf money on
black higher education until the turn of this 20th
century : when it established North Carolina College,
A&T College,' Winston-Salem, College, ?Fayetteville
State and Elizabeth City State. Now, certain state
officials are criticizing,, for. example, Elizabeth City
State freshmen for earning an average SAT score of
576 and an NTE score of 974 wherein the predo
minantly white college students are earning very high
scores both on the SAT and NTE examinations. These
same officials are also Critipizing , the scores that our
black "prospective" nurses and "prospective" lawyers,
etc., are making on their examinations. '
I think" that all black North Carolinians should be
very very .proud of their college graduates and es
pecially the onesv who . have finished colleges within
the last ten years. On the other hand, I feel that the
black family, the black churches and other social
institutions should "seriously" ' make some efforts
to help these youths to improve themselves academi
cally so that they can be equal to thejr white or any
other "ethnic groups", by the 21st century. The state
of North Carolina, with alUo! its resources, can not do
it alone. The "burden of proof? how lies with our
black North Carolina youths' of this Twentieth Cen 4
; tury to prove to" the people, of this state ind tfation
what they can do. We, all, want to see the great state
of North Carolina lead all of the Southern states in the
field of education, but it can not be done when one
race is below the National norm on all standardized
examinations. , i

areas, and to prepare with
him new programs, legislative
proposals and spending
priorities. -Since 1973 the
Board has been inoperative.
This summer the Gover
nor has reactivated the Board,
not only to develop policy
recommendations for his
administration, but also to
involve citizens in that
The basic purposes 6f the
Board are to survey the whole
range of state needs, propose
state goals,- and recommend
ways for state government to
achieve these goals.
Ms. Rhonda McLean, '

ponent Services of the LINC
Training and Technical Assis-) !
tance Office for Head Start !
from Greensboro, spoke to '
the Head Start parents of ,
Operations Breakthrough at;
the Bull City Elks Lodge,
Friday night, July 28.
Ms. McLean said there is
much doubt about, what is or
is not in today's society, but
there is no doubt about
parents' being the first and
foremost . important people
who influence how a child
will react when its his
turn to become an integral
part of society.
Consequently, she be
lieves parents should take an
active role in how and what
a child should be taught in
the early stages of life.
Additional phases of the
program dealt with parents
receiving recognition fot their
participation in Operation'1
Breakthrough. Special
congratulations went to
Miss Clarice Green for her
very special contribution to
Head Start.
