School Fees: A Roadblock to Education For All. Education Notes
Kattan, Raja Bentaouet; Burnett, Nicholas
Human Development Network Education
There is increasing momentum on the road to Education for All (EFA), but school fees are still a roadblock for too many children. Several African countries have recently abolished school fees outright. The dramatic surge in enrollments that followed is strong evidence that the payment of fees can be a major obstacle to enrollment. This document examines the impact and utilization of fees, along with the lessons learned in eliminating user fees. (Contains 2 tables.)
