Achievement Motivation as a Case of Re-Socialization in Developing Countries.
Ghosh, Ratna
The question of achievement motivation in relation to developing countries is explored. A foundation for the study is achieved through discussion of the socialization processes as they are affected by education and economic growth. It is suggested that the societal system determines motivation and values which in turn cause and determine the behaviors of individuals in the society. Problems affecting the development of achievement motivation in developing nations are noted and several existing programs in motivational development work are discussed. Knowledge of value systems, socialization practices, and economic factors in developing countries is seen as being necessary to the understanding of the concept of motivational achievement. Development in new nations, a process of trying to modernize societies while developing more creative individuals, is a matter relevant to education and resocialization practices. (Author/SHM)
