New Resources for Education: Community Management and Financing of Schools in Less Developed Countries.
Strategies for community management and financing of educational systems in developing countries are presented in this book, which is the outcome of a Commonwealth Secretariat workshop and associated studies. Part 1 deals with preliminary issues such as different types of communities and schools and reasons for community support. Part 2 provides information on establishing and running a school, including registration procedures, buildings and construction, school communities and institutional management, and financial accounting guidelines. Information on raising resources is offered in the third part, such as community level fundraising, government grants, and opportunities for outside support. Part 4 discusses quality controls at the government, agency, and community levels. An annotated bibliography of 23 sources is included. (LMI)
