Getting Children Back to School
Case Studies in Primary Education

First Edition
Edited by:

September 2003 | 440 pages | SAGE Publications Pvt. Ltd
Firmly rooted in the belief that every child has a right to basic education, this volume explores strategies and alternatives to keep children in school, reach out to those outside the schooling system, and improve the quality of elementary education. To this end, it brings together case studies of innovative educational programmes from the voluntary sector which influence, support and strengthen basic education, particularly forward and backward links.
