Double-shift Schooling

Design and Operation for Cost-effectiveness

image of Double-shift Schooling
Double-shift Schooling primarily aims to extend access and minimise unit costs. However, some systems only achieve those goals at the expense of educational quality. Policy-makers may be faced by difficult choices when designing systems.







Drawing on experiences in a wide range of countries, this book highlights the advantages and problems of double-shift systems. Comparison is made with single-shift systems, and also with systems having triple or even quadruple shifts. The book will be useful both for national and regional policy-makers, and for headteachers and others responsible for running double-shift schools.







This is the third edition of a book first published in 1989 and updated in 2000.

Staffing and Management

Introduction of double-shift systems may raise major questions of staffing and management. Policy-makers have to decide whether staff should be shared among shifts, and practitioners have to find ways to make systems work efficiently and effectively. Management is particularly challenging in overlapping shift systems.
