Association between Contract Teachers and Student Learning in Five Francophone African Countries
Chudgar, Amita
Comparative Education Review, v59 n2 p261-288 May 2015
This article investigates the association between studying with a contract teacher and a student's academic outcomes, using data from five Francophone African countries for two grade levels and two subjects. Based on this analysis, the evidence for or against this form of teacher hiring is inconclusive. The results indicate that these relationships vary depending on the country context, and the attributes of teacher demographics, working conditions, and preferences that are accounted for.
