Educational Strategies for the New Development Orthodoxy
Adams, Don
Asia Pacific Education Review, v4 n1 p1-10 2003
In the opening years of the 21st Century it would appear that a new development model has emerged supported by multilateral assistance groups such as the UN Group, World Bank, Asian Development Bank, and various NGOs. This paper will: (a) briefly sketch the emergence of the major concepts and proposed actions which form the new model for development; (b) analyze the strategic implications for national and local educational change; and, (c) critique both the general model, and in particular, examine its limitations in planning and implementing educational reform. The analysis and critique will include an argument that the new development orthodoxy requires significant and, at times, unrealistic changes in the capacities and consequences of education programs and systems.
