The books in this series are written primarily for two types of clientele: those engaged in educational planning and administration, in developing as well as developed countries; and those, such as senior government officials and policy-makers, seeking a more general understanding of educational planning and how it relates to national development. They are intended to be of use either for private study or in formal training programmes.

Educated women have very important contributions to their societies, but the educational conditions they often face lead to many disparities. This book offers specific recommendations in areas crucial to the schooling process, and continues focusing on roles and strategies that should be considered by those in a position to influence educational directions.
