Understanding Educational Financing

A Manual for Developing Countries

image of Understanding Educational Financing
These modules on educational financing evolved from a series of seminars held in the small states of the Caribbean and the Pacific. The project was set up to improve the financial understanding and budgetary skills of key educational personnel and to help bridge the gap between finance and education ministries. With greater decentralisation a common development in most countries, responsibility for planning and administering education has shifted from central ministries to district offices and, in some cases, to educational level. This autonomy underscores the challenges for other key educational personnel to acquire the skills to improve the internal efficiency of education systems and the quality of schools in a decentralised system.



This publication provides overviews of the issues raised, detailed content relevant to those issues, case studies, training material and summaries. These modules should be a useful source of information for ministries, schools, community personnel and researchers and will promote a greater understanding of the scope and relevance of educational financing.

The use of technology

Technology is considered today to be an essential tool in everyday living and its impact is increasingly being felt in the realm of education. While many persons - educators and laymen alike - support technological innovation in the curriculum, technology is often viewed as a panacea for the ills of the system. This is largely because of the dizzying pace at which newer and more sophisticated forms of technology have been appearing, each a little more complex and more difficult to understand.
