CERC is pleased to announce the latest volume in its Monographs series. It is written by Mark Bray and entitled Shadow Education in Africa: Private Supplementary Tutoring and its Policy Implications. It can be downloaded free of charge here, or purchased in paper copy for HK$100 or US$16 including postage.
The book builds on a Working Paper for UNESCO’s Global Education Monitoring Report, which for the 2021/22 edition focuses on non-state actors in education. Shadow education is recognized as a component on non-state activity of growing scale and significance.
The book addresses both Sub-Saharan and North Africa, and draws many lessons from comparative analysis. It is the first comprehensive work on shadow education in Africa, and as such is a significant milestone in the field. Particular attention is paid to regular teachers who also provide tutoring, and to private-sector enterprises.
Other CERC books about shadow education focus on:
- Asia (Bray & Lykins, 2012),
- Regulations (Bray & Kwo, 2014),
- Research Methods (Bray, Kwo & Jokić, 2015),
- Georgia (Kobakhidze, 2018), and
- Myanmar (Bray, Kobakhidze & Kwo, 2020).
