Outside Theory: An Exploration of the Links between Education and Work for Ghanaian Market Traders.
Dunne, Mairead; King, Rudith
Journal of Education and Work, v16 n1 p27-44 Mar 2003
Employment statistics and survey data show that predominantly female market traders in Ghana do no fit stereotypes of illiterate, poor workers of the informal sector. Theories assuming that higher education levels enable transitions from the informal to formal sector may need reconsideration. Education-work connections appear to be gendered and contextually contingent. (Contains 80 references.) (SK)
