Seeking and Tapping New Resources for Education: A Welsh Case Study.
Hopkin, Anthony G.
Based on research, this report proposes curriculum innovation be used to explore the feasibility of improving and extending educational provision through utilizing the resources of Non-Government Organizations (NGOs). The curriculum innovation in question is the dissemination of Development Education (DE) through Welsh teacher education. Three hypotheses are formulated based on the increased use of the resources of the NGOs in the formal sector of education. The first hypothesis is that pre-service teacher education is a potentially rich area for the promotion of innovation in the curriculum. The second hypothesis is that NGOs and similar organizations could play a significant role in the promotion of educational innovation in the formal sector of education. The third hypothesis is that NGO educational activity could promote the less overt and less popular aspects of government policy. A list of 11 references is included. (DB)
