Abstract : An examination is made of ways in which Colombian and U.S./AID educational planners can improve resource allocation to increase the quantity and quality of education in Colombia. This memorandum presents the findings of a 3-month pilot study that concentrated on the possible advantages of educational television for Colombia's primary school system. Three planning options were selected: (1) a minimal program, using present techniques and standards; (2) improvement of teaching quality through conventional means; (3) improvement of teaching quality through the expansion of education television (ETV).
