Privatization Chinese Style: Tuition Reforms In China's Postsecondary Education, Lanlin Zhang

Comparative and International Education / Éducation Comparée et Internationale

Since the endorsement of a socialist market economy in 1992 in the 14th National Congress of the Chinese Communist Party, self-financing and fee-charging principles have been widely adopted, and finally legitimized in China's higher education system. However, refonns in China's post secondary education, mainly privatization and tuition fee hikes, have produced some serious controversies and concerns among students, parents, and international education researchers. This article delves into the issues of post secondary education refonn in China and brings into attention problems that occur when policies are institutionalized in a centralized decentralization setting.

Decolonizing Indigenons Education: Beyond Culturalism: Toward Post-Cultural Strategies, Yatta Kanu

Comparative and International Education / Éducation Comparée et Internationale

As a response to the recent international calls to decolonize the education of Indigenous students and increase school success among them by including indigenous knowledge into school curricula, aspects of Aboriginall cultural knowledge/perspectives were integrated into the Social Studies curriculum in a Canadian inner city school in order to appraise the effect on academic achievement, class attendance and school retention among some Canadian Aboriginal students. Results suggest some optimism about increasing school success among these students by integrating Aboriginal perspectives. Five effective approaches to the integration of Indigenous perspectives into the school curriculum and some critical elements of instruction ...

Comparative and International Education / Éducation Comparée et Internationale

A travers un cadre theorique femme/genre et developpement, les auteures menent une discussion sur la sous-scolarisation des filles au Rwanda. Elles explorent ensuite comment les inegalites de genre interagissent avec des inegalites socioeconomiques et regionales pour entraver l'acces equitable et la participation des filles it l'education formelle au cours des periodes coloniale, apres l'independance et postgenocide. Dans la suite, elles montrent comment les organisations de femmes jouent, actuellement, un role crucial dans la promotion de l'empowerment des filles et l'equite de genre en education a travers la conscientisation a la problematique de genre, des ...

Qualitative methodology and a grounded theory perspective were used to develop themes and patterns from their stories.

The Genre Of Traditional Literature Influences Student Writing, Timothy G. Weih

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

Students listened to and discussed Native American folktales and then wrote their own, self-created narrative. Results indicated that students blended elements from the folktales with elements from their own cultures.

In-Service Teachers And Computer Mediated Discussions: Range And Purposes Of Reflection, Gaoyin Qian, Liqing Tao

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

The purpose of this qualitative study was to understand discourse types (i.e., factual, prudential, and justificatory) of in-service teachers in the graduate program in literacy education when they engaged in Computer Mediated Discussion (CMD). This study also sought to uncover the kind of support that CID provided, and to identify their attitudes towards and feelings about such forms of discussion based on their online journal entries and responses to a questionnaire. Fourteen graduate students participated in a weekly reflection for 10 weeks on the readings and on the literacy development of the children they selected for case study. Results ...

Book Talk: Continuing To Rouse Minds And Hearts To Life, Cheri F. Triplett, Alisa Buchanan

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

During the spring of 2004, we conducted research exploring the emotions of struggling readers. Specifically we were interested in finding out how school contexts, curriculum, and relationships influence students' experiences of struggle. Students in this study were 14 first, second, and third graders identified for reading intervention at their school. As we analyzed data sources, including field notes, interviews with students and teachers, we concluded that the literacy activities that engaged these students cognitively, motivationally, and emotionally were the book discussions that took place in their reading classroom. However, book discussions were not a part of reading instruction in their ...


Well-Being, Burnout And Competence : Implications For Teachers., Hitendra Pillay, Richard Goddard, Lynn Wilss Nov 2005

Well-Being, Burnout And Competence : Implications For Teachers., Hitendra Pillay, Richard Goddard, Lynn Wilss

Australian Journal of Teacher Education

Traditionally, the teaching role has been one of nurturing and developing students’ potential. However, teachers’ work today comprises a complex mix of various factors that include teaching; learning new information and skills; keeping abreast of technological innovations and dealing with students, parents and the community. These are demanding roles and there are growing concerns about teacher well-being and competence. In particular, teachers are experiencing increasing levels of attrition, stress and burnout. This study investigated the relationship between burnout and competence for a sample of mid-career teachers in primary and secondary schools in Queensland. The results break new ground in reporting ...


Are Middle Years Teacher Education Courses Justifiable?, Terry De Jong, Rod Chadbourne Nov 2005

Are Middle Years Teacher Education Courses Justifiable?, Terry De Jong, Rod Chadbourne

Australian Journal of Teacher Education

The recent growth of separate middle schools for young adolescents raises the question – do we now need separate teacher education programs in middle schooling? Or, can the staffing requirements of middle schools be met adequately by existing primary and secondary teacher education programs? This paper provides a contribution to answering these questions by discussing the rationale underlying a new graduate diploma in the middle years of schooling offered at Edith Cowan University. In doing so, the paper draws attention to the contested nature of innovations in teacher education and some uncertainty about what the future holds for them.


Changing Perceptions Of Knowledge : Evaluation Of An Innovative Program For Pre-Service Secondary Teachers., Neil Hooley, Rod Moore Nov 2005

Changing Perceptions Of Knowledge : Evaluation Of An Innovative Program For Pre-Service Secondary Teachers., Neil Hooley, Rod Moore

Australian Journal of Teacher Education

Pre-service programs for secondary teachers have traditionally involved method subjects, where participants are inducted into the curriculum practices of two disciplinary or subject areas. In 2003, Victoria University of Technology, Melbourne, enrolled a small group of fourteen pre-service teachers into an innovative Graduate Diploma of Secondary Education that directly challenged these program assumptions. Method subjects were collapsed into an integrated study of the theory, skills and practices of classroom work and connections were drawn between all enrolled subjects or knowledge. Another key feature of the program involved all pre-service teachers being placed at the one school for their partnership experience ...
