Education in Asia and the Pacific : retrospect, prospect by Raja Roy-Singh( Book )

16 editions published between 1986 and 1988 in English and Japanese and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Offered as a tribute to the growing and fruitful spirit of regional cooperation in education in Asia and the Pacific, this volume provides a retrospective and prospective view of cooperative efforts and conditions in the 28 countries of the region. Part One outlines landmark efforts accomplished through a series of unesco regional conferences beginning in 1962. For example, from 1978-1985, the Asia and the Pacific Programme of Educational Innovation for Development supported almost 600 activities at inter-country and national levels, directly involving 11,500 educators in 24 countries. Activities encompassed universalization of primary education; the struggle against illiteracy; development of science and technology education; promotion of technical and vocational education; development of environmental, population, and higher education; training educational personnel; and educational planning and administration, facilities development, and research. Part Two provides statistical data to document the situation of education in the region, including population, income, poverty, life expectancy, educational attainment, enrollment, dropout percentages, teaching staff, pupil-teacher ratios, expenditures, and illiteracy rates. Part Three details the goals, priorities, and recommendations of the Fifth Regional Conference of Ministers of Education and Those Responsible for Economic Planning in Asia and the Pacific which met in Bangkok in 1985. Part Four describes recommended actions for regional education development in the areas of educational planning and management, personnel preparation/training, research, experimentation and innovation, and international cooperation.

Adult Literacy as Educational Process. Literacy Lessons by Raja Roy-Singh( Book )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

There are 900 million illiterate people in the world. Because of reflective insights and creative research during the last two decades, the literacy process is no longer conceived as a training process that concentrates exclusively on implanting specific mechanical skills. It is now recognized as an educational process, as an unfolding of human potential. The educational process is rooted in the human condition and is expressed variously in forms and contents, in practices and methods, in organizations and structures, and in authority, power, and freedom. Myths about literacy and illiterate people foster conceptions of illiteracy as a disease to be eradicated or a pest to be liquidated and of illiterate persons as people afflicted with illiteracy or as flawed, empty vessels. Under these conceptions, the illiterate learner is considered to be a blank slate, a receiver rather than a participant, and a person to be saved. The practices fostered by the "literacy as salvation" philosophy are centered almost exclusively on the technical drills of reading and writing and other methods appropriate for young children. These practices should be eliminated as the attitudes of the last two decades become more widespread. Among those attitudes are: (1) the adult learner has the central role in defining goals and learning needs; (2) learning is perceived as a continuous and deepening process of critical awareness; and (3) and the diversity of the aims of literacy action is recognized.

Educational Planning in Asia. Fundamentals of Educational Planning, No. 37 by Raja Roy-Singh( Book )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A revitalized role of educational planning is called for in order to make education systems effective instruments for social change. This trend is persuasively articulated in the movement for educational reform currently engaging governments in several Asian countries. This booklet is an attempt to give an observer's personal assessment of the function and role of educational planning in the developing Asian countries within the last 3 decades. Educational planning is seen in the way it is carried out in the actual conditions and in the way it is embodied in plans intended for implementation. Specific countries are not dealt with on an individual basis, as the emphasis is on identifying the general trends and problems. The names of specific countries are used, however, to illustrate various points in the general framework of educational planning. A Brief history of education and educational objectives is followed by a review of the first planning mechanisms introduced in Asia. The contribution of educational planning and the problems associated with it are evaluated. The final section gives an analysis of the roles of reforms in the future of Asia's educational planning.
