Publication year: 
1995

This paper addresses the issue of participation in education and argues that operations in the education sector can be greatly improved by increasing stakeholder participation of government officials, education professionals, local communities and the private sector including NGOs. It further argues that participation can help to increase the relevance and quality of education, improve ownership and build consensus, reach remote and disadvantaged groups, mobilise additional resources, and build institutional capacity. It however identifies that participatory operations involve risks and costs and identifies certain preconditions that are necessary for its success.
