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
audit of governance and delivery of public services
