Educational Outcomes for the Poor

This is a £2.5 million project running from Oct. 2005 until Sept. 2010 involving Roger Jeffery, Neil Thin, Patricia Jeffery and colleagues in the Centre for African Studies here in Edinburgh and at the University of Cambridge, University of Oxford, and 4 partners in India, Pakistan, Kenya and Ghana.. In India and Pakistan, Roger Jeffery and Patricia Jeffery are helping to facilitate qualitative research on health, fertility and social outcomes of education (such as forms of social organisation, social exclusion and participation in key social institutions). Roger Jeffery is also co-ordinating qualitative research across the other aspects of this project, concerned with labour market outcomes, public-private partnerships in schooling, and in changes in patterns of educational funding.
