The Impact of the World Bank and IMF on Education Rights
Archer, David
Convergence, v39 n2-3 p7-18 2006
Education is a fundamental human right. As such it is clearly the responsibility of the state and a core element of any development policy committed to social justice. Securing the right to education is key to enabling people to secure other human rights, yet, according to this author, the right to education is violated by governments around the world, and is being fundamentally undermined by the World Bank and IMF, the two powerful forces that are influencing education. This article focuses on the impact of the World Bank and IMF on education rights. Included is a critique of the World Bank's report, "An Unfinished Agenda."
