Education for All: Policy Lessons from High-Achieving Countries
AbstractThis paper draws upon case studies of countries which universalised primary schooling early in their development process and rapidly increased secondary enrolments thereafter: Sri Lanka and Kerala state (India) from South Asia; Republic of Korea and Malaysia in East Asia; Botswana, Mauritius and Zimbabwe in Sub-Saharan Africa; and Barbados, Costa Rica and Cuba in Latin America and the Caribbean. It examines the common elements of social, and specifically, education policy among these high achievers, and also evaluates the policy lessons for other developing countries from the experience of these countries. The supply and demand side factors which help in explaining this success are compared with the situation prevailing in the rest of the developing world.
