History of education in Burma/Myanmar (general)

Individual Documents

Title: Education in Burma (1945-2000)
Date of publication: September 2000
Description/subject: Abstract: "This paper embodies a documentary analysis of the Burmese education system within the historical context. It provides an overview of the Burmese historical background, education before independence (1945-1948), after independence (1948-1962), under the military rule (1962-1988) and on the wave of democratisation (1988-2000). The study significantly found that Burmese schools have predominantly performed teacher-centred and subject-oriented teaching and learning with a lack of teacher training and a weak curriculum. Furthermore, indigenous people have little chance to promote their language and culture given the supremacy of the Burmese language. Although Burma has been on the wave of democratisation since 1988, the education system does not appear to be leading to a democracy." First Edition July 1999 Second Edition September 2000
