Status:
completed Project


The main purpose of this project is to study the magnitude of household spending on schooling and to highlight the various factors that influence household education expenditure in Palestine, Tunisia, Egypt, Jordan and Sudan. The project takes into consideration that governments allocate funds to education and formulated policies. Arab countries’ education policies should aim at improving the education system as a whole, including standards of the pupils and teachers together with the quality of education. Therefore, reform of governments’ education system may entail free education up to the elementary levels. Scholarships and/or subsidized tuition may then be offered to distinguished students who come from poor households for secondary and university education.
