The Change Process: What We Can Learn from Nepal. Curriculum Bulletin. Volume 27, Number 317.
Wood, Hugh B.; And Others
This collection of papers explores the development of education in Nepal during the last twenty years. Frances Dart discusses the cultural conflict between American and underdeveloped countries--conflict which occurs when one group prizes the achievements or possessions of another on a mostly non-reciprocal basis. This is followed by an examination of some of the agents which brought about, in a centuries-old, largely dormant culture, a craving for education and development. The third paper reveals some of the pitfalls of trying to borrow another culture's educational system, or make-do with an imposed foreign system, and illustrates the necessity and process for relating curriculum content in science education to the indigenous characteristics of the culture. The final paper provides examples and suggestions in the field of art education. (Author/SHM)
