In keeping with its educational philosophy, to provide basic education (equated with livelihood and based on socialistic moral values) to all citizens, Burma has been reforming its educational system since 1962. The biggest policy change came in 1977 when 17 Regional Colleges were opened throughout the country to produce middle-rung technicians; to train students theoretically and practically for successful job-entry and eventual employment on supervisory levels; to engage students in production and give them experience working with their hands while studying; and to educate students so that those of high intellectual caliber may pursue university degrees. In addition to discussing the Regional Colleges' administrative structure, the paper considers examples of other institutions providing technical and vocational education; the elimination of the first two years from universities and university-level professional institutes; the pilot project to introduce pre-vocational subjects in basic education, alternatives for administering the Regional Colleges through the various departments of education, the Educational Research Bureau, the Board of Examination, or the Burmese Language Commission; and recommendations for improving the system. Summaries of salient points of interviews, discussions, and visitations from early January through early March 1978 are appended. (Tr)
