I am so surprise to see an article of the Cambodia Daily on the result of the Accreditation Committee of Cambodia:“40 more Cambodian universities accredited” on Tuesday, Oct. 28, 2008, p. 27.
I think that is good start to evaluate the quality of local education by internal evaluation of a government institution. The finding showed that 40 more were accredited in 2007-08 to add more 33 universities in 2006-07. The total amount of universities is so high and unbelievable if compared to the 2005 MoEYS which estimated that only one in nine university graduates find employment (Mysliwiec: 2005, p.19). The question is which indicators to measure the impact of this evaluation?
I would recommend to the Education Ministry to find an external independent evaluation institution to make sure the information is accurate and reliable.
