Strategies for sustainable financing of secondary education in Sub-Saharan Africa by Keith Lewin ( )
14 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 396 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Investment in secondary schooling in Sub-Saharan Africa has been neglected since the World Conference on Education for All at Jomtien. The World Education Forum in Dakar began to recognize the growing importance of post-primary schooling for development. Only 25 percent of school-age children attend secondary school in the region-and fewer complete successfully, having consequences for gender equity, poverty reduction, and economic growth. As universal primary schooling becomes a reality, demand for secondary schools is increasing rapidly. Gaps between the educational levels of the labor force in Sub-Saharan Africa and other regions remain large. Girls are more often excluded from secondary schools than boys. Secondary schooling costs are high to both governments and households. This book explores how access to secondary education can be increased. Radical reforms are needed in low-enrollment countries to make secondary schooling more affordable and to provide more access to the majority currently excluded. The report identifies the rationale for increasing access, reviews the status of secondary education in Sub-Saharan Africa, charts the growth needed in different countries to reach different levels of participation, identifies the financial constraints on growth, and discusses the reforms needed to make improved access affordable. The book concludes with a road map of ways forward that increase the probability that more of Africa's children will experience secondary schooling

"This book addresses the question of how best to plan investment in science at secondary level in developing countries using insights from the studies conducted under a five-year research programme carried out by the International Institute for Educational Planning. The result is an extensive account, commentary and analysis of the main issues that the planners of science education in developing countries are likely to be confronted with when addressing the challenges of the twenty-first century."--Jacket
Education in austerity : options for planners by Keith Lewin ( Book )
8 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book explores the issues raised by the changing climate within which educational planning will take place in the final years of the 20th century. The volume focuses on the problems faced by countries hardest hit by economic recession and the need for adjustment to a changing economic environment. Organized into six chapters, the book addresses specific concerns following an introduction. The first concern, explored in chapters 2 and 3, charts recent trends in educational financing in developing countries, emphasizing the important differences that have emerged in the ability and willingness to allocate resources to education in different countries. Chapter 4 discusses the consequences that are likely to follow from level funding and diminished resources for education and develops eight propositions that illustrate the consequences. Austerity may bring with it unexpected changes. The changes are not simply those that might be anticipated from a reversal of growth patterns, and they have qualitatively different characteristics. Chapter 5 looks at themes that provide the basis for planning educational provision in austerity. It includes a discussion of changes in organizational climate in conditions of meagerness and contraction; proposals for assessment of the room to maneuver that exists in educational policy; suggestions for the development of monitoring systems that can indicate the sensitivity of educational quality to changes in inputs; and a review of the options open to resist contraction in resources, increase the efficiency of delivery, and refinance provision from sources other than public expenditure. Chapter 6 presents concluding remarks that synthesize the main findings and emphasize the central theme of protecting educational provision for the most vulnerable groups in developing countries that are most at risk for reductions in expenditures. A bibliography of more than 100 citations is included. (DB)
