FINANCING SECDARY EDUCATI IN TE PILIPPINES Leopoldo Cruz and René R. Calado ШИШ» шшшшж ПЕР research report:. (4 J FINANCING SECDARY EDUCATI IN TE PILIPPINES Leopoldo Cruz ала René R. Calado Financing of educational systems specific case studies - 11 INTERNATIAL INSTITUTE FOR EDUCATIAL PLAING (established by Unesco) 7-, rue Eugène-Delacroix, Paris Unesco 175 AIMS AND METODOLOGY OF TE EP RESEARC PROJECT FINANCING EDUCATIAL SYSTEMS This research project, launched by the International Institute for Educational Planning early in 170, originated in an enquiry as to the real possibility of the developing countries financing their educational objectives in the course of the United Nations Second Development Decade, bearing in mind the high level of expenditure that has already been reached in most cases, the constant rise in unit costs, and the increasing competition within the state budgets themselves that education will probably encounter in the future from the financing of productive investments, debt servicing, and other predictable expenditures. Viewed in this light, therefore, the research is not strictly limited to the study of financing techniques, but has wider aims : (1) To explore the real weight of probable financial constraints on the development of educational systems up to IO. (2) To study the various financing methods likely to augment ressources, and to define a strategy of educational financing more closely adapted to social and economic realities. (3) To analyse certain alternative solutions (new structures, new technologies, etc.) capable, by reducing costs or improving the efficiency of the teaching process, of leading to a better balance between educational targets and the resources available for them. In addition to these extremely concrete objectives, concerned with the real problems facing educational planners in all countries, the collation of the essential data should provide the basis for the answers to more theoretical questions, affecting, for example, the type of correlation between educational expenditure and the level of development, between the level of expenditure and the method of financing, between the level of unit costs and the development of the educational system, etc. CD With these aims in mind, two types of study are being undertaken: 1. National case studies for the retrospective (16l-70) and prospective (IO or beyond) analysis of the expenditure, financing and costs of educational systems in the widest and most representative possible sample of countries - at least fifteen; these studies should, as already stated, reveal both the magnitude and the nature of the financial constraints to be expected in the general framework of the development of the economy and of the finances of the state, and the level and various alternative forms for the possible development of educational systems. These studies will thus cover the whole field of educational financing, costs, and policies in each country concerned. 2. Specific case studies covering, first, the different possible methods of financing (centralised, decentralised, public, private, etc.) and, especially, original ways of raising supplementary resources, and, secondly, the study of new educational solutions calculated to reduce costs. These studies are being carried out in Member States by the EP in close collaboration with national specialists, either from government departments or from universitiesj in many cases the research is a concerted effort by the IIEP and the country concerned, for the common benefit of both parties and of the international community as a whole. This project will culminate in a synthesis report summing up the findings relating to all the problems posed. The studies themselves are being published as single monographs in the collection Financing educational systems, comprising two series, one of country case studies and one of specific case studies. The financial outlay for the implementation of this ambitious project could not be provided from Unesco's basic grant to the Institute. The IIEP is deeply grateful to the Member States and various organizations who, by their voluntary contributions, have enabled it to launch and pursue this research: in particular to SIDA (Swedish International Development (Ü) Authority), NORAD (Norwegian Agency for International Development), DANIDÂ (Danish International Development Agency), CIDA (Canadian International Development Agency), the Republic of Ireland, and the Ford Foundation. The Institute is also deeply indebted to the Member States and national specialists in various parts of the world who have agreed to co-operate with the EP in carrying out these studies. The publication by the EP of certain studies by outside consultants does not necessarily imply, however, the Institute's agreement with all the opinions expressed in them.
