- Can education markets work for the poor?
Abstract: This EDOREN report provides a review of the ‘Making Markets Work for the Poor’ (M4P) approach used for the Developing Effective Private Education in Nigeria (DEEPEN) Programme. The core objectives of this review are to:
1.Assess how similar DEEPEN’s approach is to other programmes using the M4P approach;
2.Compare DEEPEN’s M4P approach with more conventional approaches to improving private education for the poor;
3.Identify how other M4P programmes have addressed issues of equity;
4.Map interventions adopted by other M4P type programmes which could be relevant to DEEPEN;
5.Analyse the monitoring and evaluation (M&E) framework adopted by these other programmes.
