Aid to education: an Anglo-American appraisal

Book/book chapter

This report summarises the main topics discussed during the Ditchley Fundation Conference on educational aid. It explains donors' programmes and policies of educational aid, the requirements of recipient countries, general conclusions about principles and policies to be pursued and specific suggestions for future Anglo-American co-operation on educational aid.

In particular, the conference highlighted the need for balance between the progressive realisation of the right to education and economic growth, the need to give priority to primary education as well as the advantages of involving NGOs.
