It’s the process of laying out a logical structure called a plan.

  1. Degree to which the education plan forms the integral part of the economic plan
  2. The weakness or strength of the statistical services
  3. The features of the school systems-both private and public
  4. The weakness or strength of the statistical services

There are five stages

  1. Base Situation Analysis/identification of the national goals
  2. Prepare the draft education plan/determine the best of the alternative
  3. Approval and experimentation
  4. Implementation/Decision making
  5. Evaluation/ Feedback World Bank

Base Situational Analysis/identification of the national goals

Answers questions such as:

  1. To what extend has education assisted in achieving the laid down objectives e.g. production of manpower, enhancing national unity.
  2. What is the quality of the output/outcome? Do they meet the requirements of the available job opportunities?
  3. Do the output need retraining
  4. Do we need to review our curriculum
  5. Is education evolutionary enough

'Note:' A system that does not keep data cannot give this information thus need to keep data to be objective enough Before going to the next stage study carefully the existing government policies on education.

Preparation of Draft Education Plan/determining the best of the alternative/ Developing the Proposal

There is need to build consensus among the various stakeholders i.e. those with divergent ideologies e. g. sociologist, economists also between theorists (those with credentials e.g. educationists) and pragmatists (those with practical experiences e.g. teachers. Note

  1. Relative cost
  2. Benefits
  3. Time requirement
  4. Practical feasibility
  5. Regard education Effective/efficient

3 Lobbing, Approval & Experimentation

Planners are technically qualified: why should they go for MPs (some not competent). We should have a broader national interest for the plan not personal.

4 Implementation/Decision making*Every stakeholder should be involved i.e. teachers, head teachers, parents, government (All those who were consulted earlier)

  1. Formative i.e. continuous
  2. Summative i.e. at the end

5 Evaluation/Feedback

  1. What are the problems with the plan
  2. What have we achieved
  3. What have we not achieved
  4. Why have we not achieved it
  5. How do we improve what we have achieved
