Overview

Policy-Making for Education Reform in Developing Countries: Contexts and Processes

In this first book in a two-volume set, Williams and Cummings (both international education and international affairs, George Washington U.) write for those who work, or are preparing to work, as educational change agents in developing countries. The book is designed to teach techniques of education policy-making while also making the reader aware of limitations and alternative strategies, both bottom-up and top-down. Coverage includes background discussion of the contexts of reform and aspects of the process followed by practical tools and options for translating the components into a reform program.
