Does Cost of Schooling Affect Enrollment by the Poor? Universal Primary Education in Uganda.
Deininger, Klaus
Economics of Education Review, v22 n3 p291-305 Jun 2003
Evaluates the impact of Uganda's program of "Universal Primary Education," which, starting from 1997, dispensed with fees for primary enrollment. Finds, for example, that while the program was associated with a dramatic increase in primary school attendance and that inequalities in attendance related to gender, income, and region were substantially reduced, the quality of education generally declined.
