Mapping Education Reform in Taiwan from 1994 to 2013: A Social Cartography Critique
The Taiwan government established a cross-cutting reform agency titled the Council on Education Reform (CER) in September 1994. By 1996 CER had published 45 sponsored research reports, four substantive consultation documents, and one final consultation report on steps needed to reform the education system. In all, 32 recommendations focused on various reformation needs that addressed each of the elementary, secondary, and higher education subsectors as well as a focus on diversifying admission channels to higher level schools, colleges and universities. In this article, we review this historical education reform period from a social cartography lens. A primary focus of this article is to showcase in a visual (or social cartographic) manner the ideological underpinnings for each of the 5 consultation reports and 32 recommended education reform initiatives. Findings include eight ideas/ideologies that surfaced during this education reform era from 1994 to 2013.
