It is a must-have book for researchers, educationists, educators, parents, activists, planners, policy makers and politicians. Chapter 1, the Introduction by Ishmael Munene, presents the evolution and status of UPE in Africa, emphasising that the uncoordinated implementation, spearheaded by international agencies and donors, accounts for challenges of access, equity and quality confronting the primary education sector. Interrogating the tenability of lofty UPE/EFA goals within a defined time frame, Munene contends that although the value of primary education is widely acknowledged and African governments have committed substantial resources towards UPE/EFA in the past few decades, their achievements remain a pipe dream for most countries. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png International Review of Education Springer Journals
