The economic and social impacts of girls' primary education in developing countries by Advancing Basic Education and Literacy Project ( Book )
1 edition published in 1990 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This document explores the evidence that exists worldwide on the impact of girls' education, particularly primary education. It indicates areas in which impact of education is probably occurring, especially in those areas that have received little or no attention in the literature or that have been studies with methodologies that limit what can be learned. The literature review incorporates research conducted throughout the world to gain a broad perspective of the impact of girls' education. By reviewing data from countries in Africa, Asia, and Latin America, the researchers were able to capture and consider the diverse circumstances that influence the impact of education on women, and to identify trends throughout the world. A need exists to focus on studying specifically the impact of educating girls because of the relatively lesser access of girls to education, and equally importantly, the different types of impacts that literate women, as compared to literate men, might have on their societies. The economic role women play in their societies has been long underestimated by the assumptions underlying how economic input is measured. The social roles women play have been underestimated by a narrow definition of what those roles are and how they affect society. This report concludes that girls' primary education results in more active participation by women in the labor force. The positive outcomes of girls' primary education are conditioned by the prevailing economic, social, and cultural environments. (Contains approximately 400 references.) (DK)

Educating girls : strategies to increase access, persistence, and achievement by Karen Tietjen ( Book )
1 edition published in 1991 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This document reviews the interventions, such as policies, programs, and projects, that have been implemented by governments, donors, and other institutions to increase girls' access, persistence, and achievement at the primary school level. It examines both the formal system of primary education and nontraditional, alternative approaches to reach out-of-school girls. Its goal is to identify the strategies, practices, inputs, and factors that have had measurable impact in improving the availability and accessibility of basic education to girls in developing countries. The monograph employs an analytic model that categorizes interventions according to whether they address supply side (school factors) or demand side (household factors) barriers to girls' educational participation. On the supply side, few national policies are aimed at promoting girls' education. Educational expansion has limited effectiveness. At the program level, efforts are aimed at bringing schools closer to girls, making schools culturally appropriate, and helping girls learn. Textbooks, female teachers, and single sex schools may improve participation. On the demand side, interventions have attempted to lower the costs to parents of daughters' education and convince them of its benefits. Nontraditional approaches have succeeded in reaching girls prevented from attending school because of poverty and isolation. This paper concludes that, in addition to making school places available, schooling must be made accessible to girls. Multidimensional approaches to girls' education that take into account local context and both supply and demand factors have proven most successful. Selection of interventions should follow a logical process of development, based on needs assessment, monitoring, and evaluation. (DK)
