Misplaced Assumptions of Decentralization and Participation in Rural Communities: Primary School Reform in Burkina Faso.
Maclure, Richard
Comparative Education, v30 n3 p239-54 1994
In rural Burkina Faso, donor agencies and the national government have initiated a five-year reform program aimed at decentralizing educational administration and augmenting local participation in school management. Reforms are founded on misplaced assumptions about public ownership of formal education, efficacy of short-term training, and shared interest as a basis for community participation.
