Publisher's Summary:
Focuses on the failure of elementary education since Independence, which is usually seen as the result of simplified phrases like 'lack of political will' and 'because of poverty'. This book looks at the system as a whole: infrastructure, quality of teaching, privatisation, nutritional incentives and curriculum.
