Technology and Educational Reform: The Case of El Salvador.
Ingle, Henry T.
Instructional Technology Report, Jan 1974
The educational reform effort begun in 1968 in El Salvador is described in both English and Spanish. The first stage was aimed at alleviating the bottleneck in the school system at the junior high school level. Although the technology of instructional television was the most visible and highly publicized element of El Salvador's educational reform, it represented only one part of a fundamental and comprehensive change in the El Salvador school system. The reform's major components were new curricula, retrained teachers, student workbooks, teacher guides, and instructional television. Evaluation results showed increases in student learning and favorable student attitudes, but problems with teacher morale. Also discussed are cost issues and the future of the graduates of the reformed education system. (Author/STS)
