New Resources for Education

Community Management and Financing of Schools in Less Developed Countries

image of New Resources for Education
The combination of economic depression and population growth has placed increasing strain on education systems in less developed countries. This has forced governments to search for new ways to finance education systems, and many have developed keen interest in mechanisms of community financing.



This resource book highlights strategies for community management and financing. It is written in a style which is easy to follow, and it contains many examples and illustrations. As well as commenting on successful practices, it discusses problems to be avoided.



The book is mainly intended for four groups of people: national government policymakers; districtlevel government officers; leaders in churches and other nongovernment organisations who wish to establish or expand schools with government support; and community leaders with similar objectives at the local level.

Concluding Observations

Although community management and financing of education are not new, few authorities in recent years have given them much attention. The combination of economic depression and increased demand for education has made the topic even more important than it has been in the past.
