This book results from a project jointly conducted by the International Institute for Educational Planning (IIEP), France and the Advancing Basic Education and Literacy (ABEL) Project, USA. It examines strategies that have been widely advocated to enable central and regional education ministries to influence education practice at the school level, particularly in ways that result in improved educational quality and efficiency. This is accomplished through a series of case studies of national efforts to implement those strategies. These case studies identify the types of cross impacts, unintended consequences (both positive and negative), and practical problems of implementation that provide the basis for assessing the potential of these strategies to actually influence classroom practice. The book further examines what kinds of information planners, administrators and teachers need and how the communication of information should be organized to successfully undertake these actions. Information and communication have emerged as the new currency of development.The conclusions to the book propose training aimed at education leaders, planners, and administrators, particularly in developing country settings, who are searching for ways of ensuring that government initiatives can make a meaningful difference at the school and classroom levels
