Moderating the Demand for Primary Education in Malawi.
Minnis, John R.
International Journal of Educational Reform, v6 n3 p284-96 Jul 1997
Against the backdrop of declining performance, political transition, and the increasingly dominant role of donor agencies in educational decision making, this paper questions the feasibility and sustainability of educational expansion in Malawi. Three critical features of the Malawian political economy (land scarcity, declining wage economy, and demographic factors) conspire to prevent successful implementation of universal primary education. Reforms are proposed. (39 references) (MLH)
