|Abstract: ||An individual grows in the course of time. Education, too, evolves over time. Over the past decade, education in Taiwan has seen a wholesale reform on the academic advancement system, curriculum, early childhood education, senior high school education (including general and vocational high schools), vocational education, and higher education. Taiwan now embraces a more available, free, and diverse education system. It has been made possible by reforms on admission policies, a large increase in the number of senior high schools and colleges/universities, deregulation on private publication of textbooks and better opportunities for teacher training. However, many problems have arisen. There are a heavier burden of academic advancement, a fragmented curriculum, a comprehensive high school system that is not comprehensive, degraded quality of senior high schools and colleges/universities due to the large increase in number, and autonomy of colleges/universities without discipline. Vocational education has been undermined, while teachers who have finished their training cannot find teaching positions. Early childhood education has been spoilt. It is recommended that the government a) advocate the concept of Multiple Intelligences, b) implement a student-oriented curriculum, c) redefine the senior high school system, d) develop more “star schools,” e) create distinguished colleges/universities, f) promote vocational education, g) recruit teachers devoted to education, and h) improve the quality of early childhood education. If adopted, these proposals will hopefully rid the education reform of its predicament and change it for the better.|
