Village School in Sri Lanka.
Baker, Victoria J.
Anthropology & Education Quarterly, v31 n1 p109-16 Mar 2000
Describes education in poor Sri Lankan villages, examining the effects of poverty (poor teacher training, lack of equipment, and inability of students to attend); the influence of ministerial-level traditional or negative attitudes (questioning the worth of investing in equal education in remote rural areas); and weaknesses in the system that allow for corruption, bribes, favoritism, and other abuses.
