Abstract:

The failure of Tanzania's socialist education reforms to redress regional (ethnic), class, and gender inequality is examined from the viewpoint of family strategies of educational investment. A comparison of the two regions, Tabora and Kilimanjaro, reveals a contrast in the historical and material conditions which influence values and behavior concerning education for male and female children. Differential patterns in household budget allocations by men and women for the education of children are seen to vary as a result of the regionally situated class position of the household. Directing the focus of family educational strategies to investment in persons enables us to identify a female pattern of surplus allocation formerly submerged in the study of male-headed households.
