Abstract This paper seeks to evaluate the access to Public Private Partnership (PPP) schools by examining their geographic distribution and the factors that predict whether a child enrolls in a public, PPP, or private school in Punjab, Pakistan using multiple micro data sets. The analysis shows that PPP schools are located in districts where high shares of children are out-of-school, unlike public and private schools. The results indicate that while private school students are the most likely to...

Abstract Research on the causal relation between extracurricular activities and the development of cognitive and socio-emotional outcomes is scarce at the individual level, despite increasing international evidence that such activities are highly relevant and even, in some cases, more effective than traditional school improvement support programs. Based on an unprecedented intervention in the area of music, this paper evaluates the impact of intensive participation of children and young at-risk ...
Abstract In this brief commentary, I reflect on the main themes that emerge across the papers published in this special issue. Despite the focus on Israel, I argue that the key findings have relevance to other contexts. This commentary seeks specifically to identify spaces for optimism in a context often categorised as highly stratified and engaged in an intractable conflict.

Abstract The purpose of this study is to explore the main challenges facing full-time international faculty at Japanese universities based on relevant findings from a national survey of them which was carried out from June to August 2017. The study suggests that despite differences in degree, international faculty believed that they experienced many challenges at national, institutional and personal levels. This is especially true in the cases of their responses to the survey questions about the...
Abstract It is well demonstrated in the literature that education aid does not necessary produce the expected results in developing countries. The current paper explores the role of country level inefficiencies in the relationship between aid and education outcomes. Applying a Stochastic Frontier approach, it shows that the efficiency in education aid utilization varies across developing countries and seems to be positively correlated with good governance, political stability, and stronger natio...

This paper examines patterns of school choice in Egypt from primary through higher education. We use a mixed-methods approach that combines survey data with qualitative in-depth interviews to explore schooling decisions. Some private and religious schools exist, but we find that in most geographic areas school “choice” at the pre-university level is effectively limited to public schools—despite their inadequate quality. Although there has not been much change in the attendance of private schools...
Abstract Using data from the first quarter of Labour Force Survey 2018, this paper examines the role of provincial governance, education and job-education mismatch in wage differentials in Vietnam. We find that good provincial governance benefits those in lower wage quantiles more than those in higher wage quantiles. Also, the returns on higher education qualifications (e.g., bachelor’s or master’s degrees) tend to be higher for those at the bottom than for those at the top of the wage scale. Ho...
Abstract The oldest teachers’ union in Taiwan, The National Federation of Teachers Unions, has been in operation for almost eight years. This is in stark contrast with the situation in Western countries where teachers’ unions have existed for over a century. This article looks into how these pioneering teacher unionists emulated their western forerunners and finally formed a new voice for their peers. By means of interviews with twenty founding members, it is proposed that unionism and professio...
