Solving educational problems : the theory and reality of innovation in developing countries by Ronald G Havelock( Book )

13 editions published between 1977 and 1978 in English and French and held by 418 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book contains a study of the process of educational change in developing countries. It is being disseminated in the hope that it may stimulate interest in the process of change, so that a more experimental and evaluative approach may emerge in the search for a better system of education. By looking at several different sources of information about educational innovations and by inserting them in a conceptual framework, the authors try to explain how educational change occurs in different settings, why it occurs in the ways it does, and some of the implications for managing change in developing countries. The emphasis in the book is on presenting and analyzing data collected and on some preliminary ways of drawing practical lessons from them. The data presented come from five sources: (1) case study literature published within the past five years; (2) a stratified sample of detailed project evaluation reports; (3) a questionnaire administered to 81 technical advisors and national directors of teacher education projects in the principal regions of the world; (4) 27 interviews conducted with a sample of the survey population and with a number of experienced administrators, experts, and national officials; and (5) recent theoretical literature of educational change. Findings show that, in spite of large scale investments and high expectations, few innovations make a major dent at the national level in the educational or training problem which they were designed to solve.

Problems of sociology in education by Roger Girod( Book )

9 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 300 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book examines some of the main problems arising in the sociology of education, and seeks to shed light on the methods that are frequently employed to study them. An attempt is made to distinguish the formal level of education from the real level of education. On the basis of the formal level of education researchers can divide populations into categories according to the highest level attained in the education system. The real level of education, on the other hand, is the level of knowledge that individuals actually possess but that has no formal expression. The formal level and real level often bear little or no relation to one another. The problem of inequality of opportunity is explored in terms of access to education. Research methods used to explain inequality of opportunity consist of techniques for distinguishing the effects of the factors that account for the differences. For example, these techniques are used to estimate what proportion of the inequality of real levels of education can be attributed to an individual's social background and what proportion attributed to one's formal level of education. An analysis utilizing these same techniques is undertaken in an attempt to explain the distribution of occupations. A substantial bibliography is included. (Db)
