Decentralization of education : community financing (English)

This book focuses on the impact of community financing in formal primary and secondary education, although it is concerned with community and government contributions of material, labor, expertise, and land, as well as with monetary inputs. This study begins by examining the volume, nature, and mechanics of community financing in a range of settings. Discussion then turns to policy issues facing governments and those who work with them. This leads to consideration of instruments for incentives, guidance, and control of community activities. Specific strategies from different countries are presented and evaluated. The next-to-last chapter underlines the importance of monitoring and evaluation. The paper concludes by summarizing the lessons in the context of the debate about centralization and decentralization.
