Fergusson, Lee C. and Bonshek, Anna J. and Le Masson, Gildas (1995) A descriptive analysis of Cambodian higher education and teacher education from 1979 to the present. Education Research and Perspectives, 22 (2). pp. 132-148. ISSN 0311-2543


Since the 1979 overthrow of the Khmer Rouge, Cambodia's higher education and teacher education systems have undergone three principal phases of reconstruction: (i) rehabilitation under the Soviet-Vietnamese backed
government of Heng Samrin and Hun Sen in conjunction with basic education provided by the United Nations Border Relief Operation to more than 300,000 Cambodian refugees from 1979 to 1990; (ii) reorientation under the State of Cambodia, Supreme National Council, and United Nations Transitional Authority in Cambodia from 1990 to 1993; and (iii) progress under a democratically-elected government from 1993 to the present. The purpose of this study is to outline the socio-political events associated with these phases, and to describe their impact on higher education and teacher education. Where available, descriptive statistics have been provided.
