The Role of Comparative Pedagogy in Evaluating Education Systems of Different Countries
Hnatiuk, Michal
Comparative Professional Pedagogy, v7 n3 p93-98 Sep 2017
The article presents the definition of comparative pedagogy according to comparisons from different parts of the world. The subject of the pedagogical sub-disciplinary study, which in its own particular way relates to the research method, has been presented. The obtained results provide the basis for the argument that the scope of comparative pedagogy is quite extensive. In addition, over the years, it has widened considerably. The vocational comparative pedagogy has been added to the traditional direction of comparative pedagogy. Its indispensable function has been the analysis of the economic processes in close connection with the problems of preparation and improvement of the qualifications of personnel. Therefore, comparative pedagogy does not currently have a theory of one kind that definitively determines its subject matter. The author points out that not only the didactic system itself, but also the various conditions that support or inhibit educational activity, are important for comparability. This article also describes the objectives of comparative pedagogy. It has been found that the cognitive goal is to explore the knowledge of education systems and to compare the qualitative and quantitative changes in these systems. The practical aim is to borrow and introduce theoretical and/or practical solutions into the didactic system. On the other hand, the educational goal is to determine and improve the actual educational situation. Based on the collected materials, it has been concluded that both the objectives and the subject matter of comparative pedagogy research are very broad and often go beyond the area of the pedagogical sub-discipline.
