  • Education Reforms in Balochistan, 1990-1998 - A Case Study in Improving Management and Gender Equity in Primary Education
    Introduction: This country study is one of two studies jointly commissioned by the Commonwealth Secretariat and the Girls' Education Team of the Human Development Network of the World Bank. In commissioning this study, we were seeking to examine the process by which education policies targeting girls were implemented and to assess whether the desired outcomes were achieved. We were also especially interested in examining whether, and how, policies aiming to improve education quality and curriculum relevance had taken account of the gender dimension. Where serious efforts are being made to increase girls' school enrollment rates, it would seem appropriate to simultaneously work to ensure higher retention rates of girls. Ensuring that curriculum content and instructional practices are appropriate and supportive of girls is key to consolidating the gains made through increased enrollments.
