  • Moroccan EFL Secondary School Teachers’ Current Practices and Challenges
           of Formative Assessment

    • Authors: Abdallah Ghaicha, Youssef Oufela
      Pages: 1 - 15
      Abstract: This study aims at achieving two fundamental objectives: (1) exploring the extent to which Moroccan EFL secondary school teachers apply questioning, teacher feedback, peer-assessment and self-assessment as forms of formative assessment, and (2) identifying the micro and macro challenges that render the effective utility of formative assessment difficult. Despite the theoretical prominence of formative assessment, it has not been adequately addressed by research in Morocco. Therefore, exploring formative assessment practices might lead to a great understanding of what practices Moroccan EFL secondary school teachers frequently draw on to assess learners formatively. Following an explanatory sequential mixed-method design, the present study has gathered data from 98 EFL secondary school teachers using both questionnaires and semi-structured interviews. The most important results reveal that not all formative assessment practices are frequently employed and that teachers experience a number of contextual, institutional and pedagogical challenges. The results obtained from this study are vital to different stakeholders: practitioners, teacher trainers, decision makers, researchers and teachers as well.

  • Foreign Direct Investment and Employment Creation in Nigeria

    • Authors: Kehinde Banjo Aladelusi, Habeeb Olaniyi Olayiwola
      Pages: 16 - 24
      Abstract: This study investigated the impact of foreign direct investment on employment creation in Nigeria for the period of 35years (1985-2019). The study used five regressors (foreign direct investment, trade openness, government expenditure, infrastructural development, and exchange rate) and one explained variable (employment rate). The data were culled from the World Bank Development Indicators and analysis was carried out using unit root test, ordinary least square and granger causality test. The findings revealed that there is negative and insignificant relationship between trade openness, government expenditure, infrastructures and employment rate. However, positive relationship exists between foreign direct investment, exchange rate and employment but statistically insignificant at 5% level of significance. Based on the f-statistic result, the study concluded that foreign direct investment played a crucial role in creating employment for the citizens of Nigeria. It was therefore recommended among others that government should improve the state of infrastructures and security in the country as the present economy is characterized by terrorisms, kidnapping and robbery and this may drive out the investors in the country and discourage the potential ones.

  • The Realistic Predicament and Countermeasures of After-School Service for
           Rural Primary School Students in Ethnic Minority Areas of China

    • Authors: Jia WEI
      Pages: 25 - 29
      Abstract: At present, the problem of after-school service for primary school students in minority rural areas in China needs to be solved urgently. Based on the analysis of the current after-school service policy in primary and secondary schools,according to the research results, although the problem of primary school students’picking up and dropping off is not prominent, the problem of school leaving unattended at home is widespread, parents all want students to receive after-school services, however, there is a serious shortage of after-school services for non-profit students, and there are many difficulties in developing after-school services in rural primary schools. In order to meet the demand of after-school service for rural families, it is suggested that the after-school service function of rural boarding schools should be brought into full play, that qualified rural primary schools should be supported to provide after-school service, and that public welfare community after-school service institutions should be explored, provision of inclusive after-school social services as appropriate.

  • Party Primaries and the Quest for Accountability in Governance in Nigeria

    • Authors: Iwu Nnaoma Hyacinth
      Pages: 30 - 37
      Abstract: Modern democracy highlights the importance of political parties both in agenda-setting and in displaying party aspirants from whom the electorates must choose. This paper examines the processes of candidate selection against the backdrop of demand for accountability from the political officeholders in Nigeria. Interestingly representative democracy builds on the theory that the citizens are in control of the process through which their representatives are elected but empirical evidence suggests diversities in the selection process. Nigeria has experienced about twenty-two years of uninterrupted democratic rule but each successive electoral period highlights a display of citizen’s discontentment with their representatives. This phenomenon raises a fundamental question about how their representatives were ab-ini-tio selected. There has been a paucity of research on how the conduct of party primaries set the contour for the people-oriented governance in Nigeria. This paper examines a candidate’s selection within parties and its implication for accountability. It argues that the structure of party primaries in Nigeria cannot but empower party bigwigs to impose aspirants that will undermine engendering accountability in governance. It argues for strong institutional mechanisms and civil society’s role to prevent elected representatives from doing the bidding of their godfathers.

  • Innovation of Ideological and Political Education in Big Data Age

    • Authors: Yalan LI, Qingjie ZHAO, Lu JIN
      Pages: 38 - 43
      Abstract: The arrival of big data era has affected the logic and trend of social development. Big data broadens the coverage of education, highlights the subjectivity of students, and requires the data of teaching content. Big data enriches the teaching methods of ideological and political education, improves the pertinence of ideological and political education, improves the quality of ideological and political educators, and promotes ideological and political education.Big data’s core technology has been generally accepted by colleges and universities, and the application technology represented by Hadoop system has become a common tool for data mining and analysis of ideological and political education in colleges and universities. In the era of big data, we should pay attention to the innovation of data mining and data analysis.

  • Adequate Mental Health, a Prerequisite for Effective Administration

    • Authors: Kenneth Ubani
      Pages: 44 - 53
      Abstract: Mentality as well as Mental imbalance is a possible cause of crime and maladministration in most societies. Mental state is one important factor that can condition one’s mind to act one way or the other. This is why mental health is significant in one’s life. But it seems it is often neglected in health care considerations in most societies. Mentality and Mental health often condition the performance of an individual in a position of authority or public service. In most societies, credible governance or leadership seems to be taken for granted thus arbitrary selection or imposition of leaders, usurpation or violent coveting of offices, crime, domination or other forms of headship responsibilities without consideration on the mental states of individuals involved. Leadership is an important aspect of human organization. In an egalitarian society hegemony can make or mare a people. The thrust of this article is on mental health provisions and who should lead. One aspect of consideration, which this paper emphasizes, as a major discourse is Mentality and mental health as basic qualifications or prerequisite for leadership because of its varied consequences if not checked and certified in an individual before a leadership selection is made and also the ability to detect a misnomer by possible inference in an individual leader and the need for replacement or rehabilitation until one is proved fit. By observation, the paper exposes the many dangers of having a mentally indisposed personality as the leader with suggestions on how or who should be selected to run or lead a public office. At the end we suggested that people who should lead should be of sound mind, positive mentality showing positive character and must be tested mentally before they assume public office. Criteria for test has been subsequently and tentatively prescribed.

  • A Comparison between Mohism and Utilitarianism

    • Authors: Xiaofei MA
      Pages: 54 - 57
      Abstract: Mohism is not a form of utilitarianism. First of all, neither of the two is ego-oriented. Besides, utilitarianism is based on individual interest, and the interest of community is simply the sum up of every individual interest; while Mohism does not put self-interest or individual interest first, but rather treat interest of community as primary consideration, which sometimes requires individuals to satisfy their own interest to make the public interest possible. The comparison between Mohism and utilitarianism illustrates the danger of employing western philosophical ideas to interpret ancient Chinese terms.

  • Glocalization Nature of Covid-19 Pandemic: The Nigerian Experience

    • Authors: Ayotunde David Odewale, Oluwaseun Ebenezer Adeyemo, Anthony Ogechi Osuji, Afolabi Olaleye
      Pages: 58 - 72
      Abstract: COVID-19 has come as a global phenomenon with some globally agreed guidelines to curtail the pandemic, yet the approaches in each nation, localities, and communities differ, in order to embrace the peculiarities of local needs, which lead to the essentiality of the concept of glocalization. Although, the pandemic is global phenomenon, but the ideal approach and application is glocalized in nature. Nigeria nation adopts different measures to cushion the effect of the pandemic in accordance with WHO guidelines. The paper looks at the Nigerian experience and peculiarities as regards to the global standard. Primary and secondary source of data were utilized. The paper reveals some peculiarities in Nigerian localities in respect to face masking, lockdown order, hand washing, social distancing, palliative measures and other local innovations. The paper concluded that though, the vaccine for the pandemic has been detected globally but it has not been administered in Nigeria as of now, the citizens must continue to obey the WHO guidelines as they embrace the peculiarities of their local need.

  • Legal Regulation on the Evaluation of Teachers’ Professional Titles
           in Public Universities

    • Authors: Xueqing RUI
      Pages: 73 - 79
      Abstract: With the frequent disputes over the evaluation of teachers’ professional title in public universities,the standardized operation of the teachers’ professional title evaluation in public universities has become a new problem faced by public universities and the government.Public universities should focus on improving the self-regulation mechanism for the teachers’ professional title evaluation.The government should take guidance and cooperation as the principles and replace the traditional approval model with flexible supervision.Judicial review should intervene in the teachers’ professional title evaluation in public universities to protect the rights and interests of teachers, but the academic autonomy of universities should be respected.

  • A Review of the Impact of FDI on Skill Acquisition

    • Authors: Yang FENG, Yang WANG
      Pages: 80 - 86
      Abstract: Foreign direct investment (FDI) is an important force that promotes the economic growth and social development in developing countries, and it is also an important factor that affects skill acquisition of local residents. Based on the recent literature, this paper systematically summarizes the impact of FDI on individual educational attainment. The conclusion shows that whether FDI could promote individual’s skill acquisition, depends on the job opportunities and wages, as well as conceptual influence that FDI brings to the host country. This paper provides a reference for the long-term impact of FDI on the human capital accumulation, and indicates the available direction of related topic.

  • Relation Between Indian Constitution and Democracy

    • Authors: Kavita Kumari
      Pages: 87 - 90
      Abstract: Today the people in India are in a mood which comes rarely in the life of a country. They are looking forward starry eyed, to a new direction, a new era, a life. It is time not merely for a new budget or a new licensing policy or a new price structure. It is the moment for shaping and moulding a new society, for giving a new and clear orientation to the nation. The constitution is not a structure of fossils like a coral reef and is not intended merely to enable politicians to play their unending game of power. When a republic comes to birth, it is the leaders who produce the institutions. Later, it is the institutions which produce the leaders. In India’s case the established structures failed to give desired results. If the system of Parliamentary democracy had been worked in conformity with the objectives for which it has been established and the obligations and codes of conduct it imposes on politicians, political parties and their mutual relations, it would have constituted a most heart warming feature in finding a way out of the morass and confusion in which we are finding ourselves as a nation. In the words of T.S. Eliot, ‘we had the experience, but we missed the meaning’. We the Indians, know it well that our democratic institutions have not been worked in that manner. Our electorate is largely illiterate and not in a position to take an objective or critical view of the promises and performances of different political parties.

  • Linking Social Capital to Therapeutic Practices in Korhogo, Côte
           d’Ivoire

    • Authors: Adiko Adiko Francis, Ymba Maïmouna, Esso Lasme Jean Charles Emmanuel, Yéo Soungari, Tra Bi Boli Francis
      Pages: 91 - 97
      Abstract: In the northern areas of Côte d’Ivoire most affected by the 2010/2011 post-electoral armed conflict, the functioning and use of health services were negatively influenced. This study seeks to describe the nature of the social capital of Korhogo households and to analyze its influence on their choices in terms of therapeutic practices. The study, both quantitative and qualitative, was carried out in the North of the country, more precisely in Korhogo, a city located in the Poro region. The questionnaire was administered to 588 heads of households in 49 enumeration areas. In these EAs, 38 semi-structured interviews and 6 focus groups were also organized with health workers, traditional healers and local leaders. Overall, households perceive two forms of social capital: individual social capital and collective social capital. On the basis of this more or less clear knowledge of social capital, almost all households (92.8%) say they rely on the “human resources” dimensions compared to just over two-thirds (69.2%) for those relating to financial resources. Modern medicine (36.1%) and traditional medicine (32.8%) are the most dominant in the region. The majority of households (83.0%) are led to opt for a therapeutic practice following discussions with the members of their networks.
