Revisiting the Vocational School Fallacy: A Tribute to Philip Foster
Lauglo, Jon
Comparative Education, v46 n2 p223-235 May 2010
More than four decades ago, Philip J. Foster (1927-2008) published an essay on the "The vocational school fallacy in development planning," drawing on research on schools in Ghana. That essay has been reprinted in numerous texts and remains frequently quoted in recent research literature. What were his main general insights about vocational education and how have these stood the test of time? (Contains 2 notes.)
