EDUCATION AS AN INSTRUMENT OF NATIONAL POLICY AND ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT IN THE REPUBLIC OF CHINA, PHASE 1--EDUCATION AS AN INSTRUMENT OF NATIONAL POLICY IN SELECTED NEWLY DEVELOPING NATIONS.
FOSTER, DONALD M.; HANNA, PAUL R.
AN EXAMINATION WAS MADE OF THE EDUCATIONAL POLICIES AND PROGRAMS OF THE REPUBLIC OF CHINA IN RELATION TO ITS NATIONAL GOALS FOR ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT. THE OBJECTIVES WERE TO INVESTIGATE (1) THE EXTENT TO WHICH THIS NATION DELIBERATELY USES ITS EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS AS AN INSTRUMENT OF NATIONAL DEVELOPMENT POLICY, (2) HOW EDUCATION IS CONTRIBUTING TO THE ACHIEVEMENT OF THESE GOALS, (3) WHAT EVIDENCE EXISTS THAT DESIRED RESULTS ARE BEING ACHIEVED, AND (4) WHAT NEW EDUCATIONAL REQUIREMENTS ARE NEEDED TO MEET NATIONAL DEVELOPMENT GOALS. VISITS WERE CARRIED OUT TO SCHOOLS, INDUSTRIES, AND GOVERNMENTAL ORGANIZATIONS FOR DISCUSSIONS WITH STUDENTS, EDUCATORS, WORKERS, INDUSTRIALISTS, AND OFFICIALS. TO COLLECT OBJECTIVE DATA, THREE SEPARATE BUT COMPLEMENTARY SURVEYS WERE CONDUCTED--(1) THE VOCATIONAL-INDUSTRIAL SCHOOL STUDENTS SURVEY, (2) THE VOCATIONAL-INDUSTRIAL SCHOOL GRADUATES SURVEY, AND (3) THE FACTORY SKILLED WORKER FORCE SURVEY. THESE SURVEYS PROVIDED VALID DATA FOR RECOMMENDED POLICY, PROGRAMS, AND IDENTIFICATION OF FUTURE RESEARCH. RECOMMENDATIONS ON NATIONAL EDUCATIONAL POLICY CHANGES AND REORGANIZATION WERE MADE IN NINE AREAS OF RESEARCH. (HB)
