Education is now the major programme of expenditure of governments in Asian countries. This book brings case studies from Philippines, India, Sri Lanka, and Thailand to discuss themes like equality in education; schooling, earnings, and occupation; educational expansion and the labour market; determinants of educational achievement; school enrolment in India, Sri Lanka, and Thailand; and educational innovations and inequality. This book is a must read for scholars and researchers of education, public policy, and economics.
