Issues of educational access, quality, equity and impact in Nigeria: The EDOREN review of literature on basic education

Abstract:

This literature review examines the findings of empirical studies from between 2000 and 2013 that relate to factors affecting educational access, quality, equity and impact in basic education. It also considers related grey literature and policy documents. Most of the literature refers to public primary education, predominantly in northern Nigeria, with an emphasis on girls’ education since this has been the focus of recent development efforts, which have produced most of the available documents.
