Progress in literacy and learning, especially through universal primary education, has done more to advance human conditions than perhaps any other policy. Our generation has the possibility of becoming the first generation ever to offer all children access to good quality basic education. But it will only happen if we have the political commitment -- at the country as well as at the international level -- to give priority to achieve this first in human history. And it will only happen if also those who cannot afford to pay school fees can benefit from a complete cycle of good quality primary education. Investment in good quality fee-free primary education should be a cornerstone in any government's poverty reduction strategy.

Since the mid-nineties, an increasing number of developing countries have been abolishing school fees, especially at the basic levels, in order to improve their poor education outcomes. This paper analyzes the effects of these policies not only on the rate of primary enrollment, but the rates of completion of primary school and the average years of education. The analysis finds that the results vary in magnitude from country to country, but it shows that children who were exposed to the policy were significantly more likely to have enrolled in primary school, to have completed primary school, and to have had significantly more years of education.

This important book looks at the effects of educational expansion, particularly expansion of secondary education, on the labor market in developing countries. Hazlewood presents, analyzes, and compares data derived from surveys of employees in Nairobi and Dar es Salaam on such topics as the relationship between education, wages, occupation, and the phenomenon of "filtering down"; training provided by employers; relations between employees' education and that of their parents and children; assortative mating; intergenerational occupational mobility; and the role of education in rural-urban links.
