Improving the efficiency of schools is a growing concern of educational planners and managers in Asian countries in recent years. The seminar on Improving School Efficiency was convened in December 1998 to address this concern. Seminar topics in this book cover challenges to educational reform, including the introduction of school-based management, which, in turn, engenders changes in the role of central authorities; evaluation of teachers and especially of schools as individual units; and school equity. After the summary, five seminar papers include: "School Autonomy through School-Based Management: The Case of Sri Lanka" (Wilfred J. Perera); "School Autonomy and Efficiency: Some Critical Issues and Lessons" (R. Govinda); "Supervision and Support Services in Five Asian Countries: A Comparative Analysis" (A. De Grauwe); "School Efficiency and Student and School Evaluation in Victoria" (B. Griffiths); and "Evaluation of Primary and Secondary Schools in Korea" (HyunSook Yu). Five annexes contain details about the Improving School Efficiency seminar: opening speech by Professor Wiswa Warnapala, opening statement by G. Carron, seminar program, list of participants, and a list of abbreviations. (Contains 48 references.) (RT)
