Public Sector Reform in Developing Countries Summary


Public Sector Reform in Developing Countries: A Handbook of Commonwealth Experiences by Victor Ayeni

A country-by-country synopsis of public sector reform in 40 Commonwealth developing countries. The book presents a brief profile of each country and the background to recent political and economic changes, followed by an outline of the key reform initiatives, the implementation processes, the achievements and the problems encountered. Wherever possible each section concludes with a sketch of proposed initiatives and future programmes. This accessible publication focuses on the experiences, successes and achievements of developing Commonwealth countries, and aims to facilitate the sharing of experience and good practice. It is a seminal departure from the existing literature in the area of public sector reform, which largely concentrates on the individual experience of the developed countries.

The African Symposium: An Online Journal of the African Educational Research Network, Volume 9, No.1 'a valuable examination of the inequalities present in the school systems of four Commonwealth countries and will prove interesting to anyone interested in educational policy, social inequality and professional development. It is easy to engage with, strongly underpinned statistically, and insightful as to its recommendations.' - ESCalate (Read the full review: http://escalate.ac.uk/5200). ESCalate 'The book is admirable, particularly in the way in which it renders rather complex statistical data in an accessible and comprehensible form, which makes the book 'user-friendly', even for those who may not be involved with schooling or the EFA. It is concisely written and very informative. A definite 'must read' for those immersed in the field of education and EFA and MDGs.' - Perspectives in Education, Volume 28(1), March 2010.
