This is a book on evaluation, surely an important social concern today. Evaluation has become important for reasons both professional and political. Professional planners and managers want evaluation to ensure better implementation and, thereby, greater effectiveness of their programs. Politicians demand evaluations to promote greater accountability all round. Evaluations of literacy projects, programs and campaigns are being required for the same set of reasons.

Entering school is one of the great events of life for both the child and the family. This is easy to understand since the child’s whole previous way of life changes. This fact is enough in itself for a number of children to face difficulties of adaptation in the first form. Today practice and educational literature offer a rich variety of devices to overcome this problem. Over the past few decades, however, it has become more and more obvious that the articulation of family and pre-school to school is not just a problem of adaptation which can be solved by successfully habituation....

A large number of developing countries have recently launched massive programmes of adult literacy on a national scale, complementary to efforts towards implementing the universalization of primary education for children of school-going age. It has, however, been observed that those neo-literate adults who acquire literacy through such programmes have great difficulty in retaining it, and some of them lapse back into illiteracy if timely follow-up measures are not taken.

For historical reasons and on account of economic backward-ness, eighty per cent of the whole population of old China were illiterate.
