Rebirth of the Learning Tradition: A Case Study on the Achievements of Education for All in Cambodia. Mid-Decade Review of Progress towards Education for All.
This report describes and analyzes the efforts and achievements made in Cambodia during the past 16 years with a special focus on developments after the United Nations organized election in 1993. During this process UNESCO played a small but important part in the reconstruction of education, freedom of expression (through the training of journalists), and protection of Angkor Temples, a major cultural heritage of Cambodia and the world. As background, the report points out that the end of World War II in 1945 marked the beginning of conflict and misery for Cambodia. The Cambodian War escalated to its peak during the 1970s and caused over two million deaths and hundreds of thousands of disabilities. The report is divided into the following chapters: (1) "Introduction" (offers geographical and historical background information on Cambodia, and educational planning objectives and Year 2000 targets); (2) "Focus on Primary Education" (presents goals and strategies for primary education, material on and a model of cluster schools, and problems to overcome); (3) "Other Aspects of Basic Education" (provides material on the adult literacy program, preschool education, lower secondary education, and training in essential skills through nonformal education); and (4) "Conclusion" (contains material on meeting needs, including a funding summary, coordination between donor agencies, and conclusions). Three annexes furnish acronyms and abbreviations, a list of pilot cluster school sites in Cambodia, and a 14-item selected bibliography. (BT)
