Expansion of Private Secondary Education: Lessons from Recent Experience in Tanzania.
Lassibille, Gerard; Tan, Jee-Peng; Sumra, Suleman
Comparative Education Review, v44 n1 p1-28 Feb 2000
Rapid growth of private secondary schools in Tanzania in the 1990s was fueled by excess demand and looser government policies. Longitudinal data on secondary school characteristics and student performance suggest that the expansion was accompanied by declining access for disadvantaged students, high teacher turnover, and narrow interschool differences in effectiveness due to poor educational quality at the primary level.
