Japan’s educational cooperation to Africa: A sharing approach

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This paper provides a brief overview of Japan’s educational cooperation to Africa, characterizing it as an attempt to share some key features of its own educational development experience. These features include, at the level of national policy, an early emphasis on ‘education for all’, followed later by ‘science education for all’, and, at the level of schools, a fairly consistent effort to promote teacher training practices. How these experiences are actually reflected in Japan’s educational cooperation to Africa is illustrated in terms of concrete educational assistance projects in some African countries, and the outcomes of these efforts analyzed. The paper argues that the effectiveness of the experience-sharing approach employed in Japan’s educational cooperation would depend as much on the learning efforts of the African countries on the receiving end of the cooperation as on the disposition of the Japanese cooperation agency to facilitate the learning process.
