Higher education research to generate alternative educational models in view of the inadequacies of the formal educational system: cases observed in Madagascar

Rakotozafy Harison, Jean-Baptiste Joseph

Abstract:
The paper is about the contributions by teacher researchers of the University of Fianarantsoa against alternative models of traditional educational practices to bridge the educational gaps in Madagascar.  This paper conveys the idea that national university research should also play a role in the development and improvement of our education systems, areas where the pressure for co-operation and international models are high. It focuses on the fact that the educational system is made to address local issues. It also highlights the fact that the educational practices outside the traditional system that are included in non-formal education should also be subject of "scientific" considerations similar to those of formal systems and deserve in fact places of choice in higher education research  which is still far from being the case today.
