The Important Position of the Issue of Higher Vocational Education in Pedagogy
Maoyuan, Pan
Chinese Education and Society, v40 n3 p11-26 May-Jun 2007
In China, schools of a vocational nature are becoming increasingly important because of the needs of the developing socialist cause, and they are rapidly increasing in number. Some people maintain that vocational education and general education are identical in terms of theory and principle and that issues of vocational education can be resolved simply by researching general education. Although higher vocational education and general education are identical in terms of a number of the most basic theories--such as the substance of education, the objectives of communist education, the basic principles of the education process, and the basic principles and contents of moral education--the two are different on many important issues and require special research. In this article, the author discusses the difference between vocational education and general education, and between higher education and secondary or elementary education. The author also discusses the important position of the issue of higher vocational education in pedagogy. (Contains 4 notes.)
