Effective Schools in Developing Countries (Routledge Library Editions: Education)
This volume brings together eight case studies which describe a variety of initiatives to create more effective schools for children of poverty, especially in the Third World. The initiatives reviewed published and unpublished documents and both qualitative and statistical studies were examined. Each initiative was developed independently to address unique challenges and situations but taken as a group, the features of the approaches described in this volume can be viewed as a basis for considering the development of effective schools strategies in other contexts.

Development and the Debt Trap Economic Planning and External Borrowing in Ghana, 1st Edition By Andrzej Krassowski Ghana is one of the earliest and most serious examples of the build up of foreign debt by a developing country to support its policies for economic growth. This book, however, does not seek to add to this literature. Rather than re-emphasizing the persistence of poverty and suffering, the focus of the following chapters will be on the identification and analysis of change as opposed to continuity.
The most significant of the long-term changes in sub-Saharan Africa which are documented below are the emergence of capitalist social relations of production and the development of the productive forces.
Extensive reading: why it is good for our students… and for us.
The focus on relations and forces of production is derived from Marx's analysis of the origins and development of capitalism, an analysis which stresses the interaction of social, political and economic processes. The justification for the use of this analytical framework ultimately rests on the degree to which it is successful in illuminating the actual process of historical development, or, in the words of Dobb, 'on the extent to which it gives a shape to our picture of the process corresponding to the contours which the historical landscape proves to have' , 8.
For Marx, the preconditions for a transition to capitalism were 'that two very different kinds of commodity possessors must come face to face and into contact; on the one hand, the owners of money, means of production, means of subsistence, who are eager to increase the sum of values they possess, by buying other people's labour power; on the other hand, free labourers, the sellers of their own labour power' Marx , Thus, the origins of capitalist development were rooted in changes in ownership and control of the means of production.
The consequence of the establishment of capitalist social relations has been an unprecedented rate of technological change, a sustained improvement in the level of development of the productive forces. Changes in relations of produc-. An unknown error has occurred.
