Secondary Education in Africa: Strategies for Renewal. World Bank Presentations at the UNESCO/BREDA-World Bank Regional Workshop on the Renewal of Secondary Education in Africa (Mauritius, Africa, December 2001). Africa Region Human Development Working Paper Series.
Mastri, Lawrence, Ed.
During the last 3 decades secondary education has become universal in most industrialized countries. Sub-Saharan African countries face special challenges to benefit from this international trend. The gap between these countries and the rest of the world in coverage, quality, and relevance of secondary education is widening. To address these issues, the Africa region of the World Bank, in cooperation with African educators and institutions, launched the "Study on Secondary Education in Africa" (SEIA). The SEIA study is executed in two phases from 2002 to 2004. During the first phase data and reports are produced; the second phase disseminates results and conducts regional workshops to discuss ways to improve secondary education in Africa. This publication contains presentations made by World Bank staff and consultants during the December 2001 UNESCO/BREDA (United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization/Regional Bureau for Education in Africa)--World Bank Regional Workshop in Mauritius (Africa) on the "Renewal of African Secondary Education." Following a Foreword and Introduction, papers in the publication are: "Secondary Education in Africa (SEIA)" (J. Bregman; S. Stallmeister); "Education Policies and Reform in South Korea" (Gwang-Jo Kim); "Renewal of Secondary Education Curricula and Assessment in South Africa" (S. J. Howie); "Recent Reforms of Science, Mathematics and ICT Education in the Netherlands in Basic and Secondary Education" (M. Pieters); and "Effective Monitoring of the Quality of Education" (F. J. M. A. Rameckers). (BT)
