An Evaluation of Taiwan Vocational and Technical Education Programs in Agriculture.
Meaders, O. Donald; Chi-ho, Hu
Presented in both English and Chinese, this study of the system of agricultural education in Taiwan secondary and postsecondary schools resulted from the author's five-month stay in Taiwan and subsequent visits. Focus of the study is on evaluation of Taiwan's vocational agriculture education programs with information about students, faculties, facilities and equipment, and graduates. The evaluation involved identifying agricultural goals, determining objectives for the educational programs, and judging program strengths and weaknesses in terms of these goals and objectives. Recommendations for changes in educational programs and in program administration are also made. Appendixes include data collected from surveys of schools and graduates of Taiwan vocational and technical curricula and maps showing agricultural population, programs, and planned specialized production areas.
