Item description for Changing Education: Leadership, Innovation and Development in a Globalizing Asia Pacific (Cerc Studies in Comparative Education) by et al....
This book responds to the growing unease of educators and non-educators alike about the inadequacy of most current educational systems and programs to meet sufficiently the demands of fast-changing societies. These systems and programs evolved and were developed in and for societies that have long been transformed, and yet no parallel transformation has taken place in the education systems they spawned. In the last 20 years or so, other sectors of society---transportation, communication, health services---have radically changed the way they operate, but education has continued essentially the same. This book represents a welcome guide to those willing to accept the challenge to change education. This book does not focus on improving existing educational systems but on changing them althogether.
