United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, Bangkok (Thailand). Principal Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific.
The member states in Asia and the Pacific region participating in the Asia and Pacific Programme of Educational Innovation for Development (APEID) initiated an effort to restructure secondary education. During its fifth programming cycle (1992-1996), the APEID continues its focus on restructuring secondary education. Consequently, the UNESCO Principal Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific (PROAP) and its Asian Centre of Educational Innovation for Development (ACEID) met in Thailand to assess the state of secondary education and make recommendations for the future. The first of four chapters in this report describes the state-of-the-art of secondary education, including the APEID initiative and major reforms and concerns in the region. Improving the quality of secondary education is the subject of chapter 2 and working toward implementation of reform of secondary education at the threshold of the 21st century is discussed in chapter 3. Chapter 4 covers regional and national action for 1992-96. Appendices A-F include gross enrollment ratios at the second level of education, duration of compulsory education, structure of school education, gross enrollment ratios at the tertiary level of education for 1986-88, and a case study. Annexes I-IV include an agenda, addresses, list of participants, and members of working groups. (JPT)
