The Fundraising and Utilization of Indigenous Educational Expenditure in Taiwan: A Study from the Perspective of Good Governance
Good governance, as a new form of governance model, advocates that the government must comply with various basic principles when executing public affairs. To maximize the good of the public, the government should comply with the law, be effective, promote participation, emphasize accountability, ask for prompt responses and equity, along with others. The fundraising and utilization of indigenous educational expenditure are vital parts of public affairs, which are areas of concern in the theory of good governance. Meanwhile, the unique political, complicated, and professional features of indigenous educational expenditure constitute the dilemma of governance. Therefore, if the fundraising and utilization of indigenous educational expenditure could continue to be made in compliance with the principles of good governance, it not only can enhance indigenous people’s understanding of educational policies, but it also can boost the cultivation of indigenous talents and cultural heritage. Thus, this paper adopted the perspective of good governance as the analytical framework and used the fundraising and utilization of indigenous educational expenditure in Taiwan as the theme to examine the reality of indigenous educational expenditure in Taiwan through literature reviews, document analysis, in-depth interviews, focus group interviews to further correspond to the six principles of good governance and clarify the urgent parts for improvement. A feasible pathway was finally proposed that might lead to the goal of good governance in fundraising and utilization of indigenous educational expenditure in Taiwan.
