Abstract:
Technical and vocational education and training has been enthusiastically adopted by bilateral agencies and multilateral development banks as a response to global skill shortages. In Mongolia, vocational training has become the cutting edge of education sector development. But the major bilateral agencies have not understood the function of education in Mongolia’s developing economy. Consequently, doing education is going terribly wrong and the great promise of vocational education contributing to national development is being compromised by good intentions but poor practice. Vocational education and training in Mongolia is an example of doing education badly where the collective investment is contributing to excess capacity. This study examines education development through the lens of ethnographic history to explain why an investment in education within a narrow band is more beneficial than an over investment in all the wrong places
