The dynamics of educational reform in contemporary Egypt by James A Toronto( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Egypt has historically played an important role as an educational leader in the Middle East, its institutions of higher learning having influenced the developme nt of education in many Arabic and Islamic countries. Today, however, Egypt's in fluence is waning because of a decline in the quality of its educational system, the result of a rapidly growing student population which has overburdened schoo l facilities and resources. In response to these problems, the Ministry of Educa tion recently initiated a comprehensive reform plan designed to expand education al opportunity to all citizens and to improve the quality of instruction and cur riculum at all levels. This study attempts to describe the reform effort currently underway and to show the importance of non-technical factors--historical, political, socio-religious, and bureaucratic--in the process of reform. Too often planners, policy makers, and researchers view educational change strictly as a mechanical exercise in ra tional planning: identifying goals, objectives, and programs for reform and then allocating the necessary resources to achieve them. However, the literature on implementation of social change in developing countries and the results of my ow n work in Egypt illustrate how forces and issues outside the technical planning process impinge on the formulation and implementation of even the most carefully crafted plans for educational reform. This study argues for the integration of technical and humanistic disciplines as a tool for promoting positive change in developing countries. It treats the bro ad theme of educational reform in Egypt, exploring current educational issues of overcrowding, curriculum, examinations, teacher placement, and school informati on, and analyzing contextual factors in the past, in present society, and in the bureaucracy that affect the Ministry's efforts to deal with these issues. The c ombination of forces discussed includes historical trends, national leaders, int ernational donors, the bureaucracy, and the socio-religious issue of Islamizatio n
