A Comparative Education Course: Experience and Views of Students at a South African University.
Wolhuter, C. C.
This paper deals with research on a comparative education course as assessed by students at the University of Zululand, South Africa. The paper outlines the teacher training program at that university, the place of comparative education within that program, and the curriculum of the comparative education course. At the end of the course 245 students were asked to rate the course as a whole and thereafter each of the following topics on a 5-point Likert scale: education policy; human rights and education; comparative education; the education system of South Africa; the education system of England; and the education system of Kenya. Students were also asked which countries' education systems and/or topics not included in the course they would like to be part of the course. Finally, they were asked to motivate their ratings and their desires of topics that they feel should be included in the course. This paper summarizes and discusses the response to the comparative education course. Contains several tables. A sample questionnaire is appended (Author/BT)
