Low-Fee Private Schools, the State, and Globalization: A Market Analysis within the Political Sociology of Education and Development

This study investigates the emergence and supply-demand dynamics of a market for low-fee private schools (LFPS) at the level of early childhood care and education (ECCE) in a slum of Lusaka, Zambia. Based on data collection over 1.5 years, the study reveals that, despite a government policy to support ECE, over 90 per cent of ECCE centres are private; that school operators tend to be former teachers, businessmen/women, and religious leaders; and that LFPSs charge, on average, 2.5 times as much as government ECCE centres for tuition, not including additional indirect costs.

Moscow Framework for Action and Cooperation: Harnessing the Wealth of Nations

The Moscow Framework for Action and Cooperation was based on a review of challenges and progress made towards the Education for All (EFA) Goal 1 of expanding early childhood care and education (ECCE).

It noted the need to address relevant challenges by taking advantage of the existing knowledge base and good practices and taking steps to universalise the latter.

Le Cadre d'action et de coopération de Moscou est basé sur un examen des défis et des progrès réalisés en vue de l'objectif 1 de l'Éducation pour tous (EPT), à savoir développer l'éducation et la protection de la petite enfance (EPPE). Les participants ont réaffirmé l'engagement en faveur de l'EPPE exprimé à Jomtien (1990) et à Dakar (2000), mais ont conclu que l'objectif 1 de l'EPT risquait fort de ne pas être atteint d'ici 2015 si des mesures urgentes et résolues n'étaient pas prises.
