Bulgarian Comparative Education Society, Paper presented at the Annual International Conference of the Bulgarian Comparative Education Society (11th, Plovdiv, Bulgaria, May 14-17, 2013)
To better understand current curricular reforms in some Asia-Pacific countries that came out of conflict periods, documents and information posted on various national and international agency websites were analysed. In this paper we aimed to (i) present a brief description of the conditions under which new secondary education curricula are being implemented in East Timor; (ii) describe the general characteristics of some Asia-Pacific countries that came out of conflict periods; (iii) analyse the factors that are impacting secondary educational changes in these countries; and (iv) identify some important issues to be considered in secondary school reform in East Timor.
