The Role of First and Second Cycle Institutions

The focus of this paper is on the role of primary and secondary education in human resource development. Such a role is obviously influenced by many factors such as the level of economic development of a country, the importance of high-level technology in its economy, and the social and economic problems which it faces. Therefore any suggestions for reform made in this paper cannot apply indiscriminately to all Commonwealth countries irrespective of their economic and social realities.
