The idea of education for local development is directly tied to the need of preparing people for tomorrow who can take an active part in the initiatives capable of generating development. When we try to foster initiatives of this type today, we notice that it is not only children, but adults as well who lack a range of knowledge from the origin of their own street’s name to the potential of the subsoil of the region where they were raised.  In order to have an active citizenry, we have to have an informed citizen, and this begins early. Education should not only to serve as a springboard  for a person to escape from his region: it should give him the knowledge needed to help transform it. Scielo http://bit.ly/pbhTQv
