Education and National Development: Essay Review

  1. 1. Education and National Development The Continuing Problem of Misdiagnosis and Irrelevant Prescriptions
  2. 2. Education and National Development: The Continuing Problem of Misdiagnosis and Irrelevant Prescriptions Dear Reader: Even though the attached review article was published many years ago, the awful tragedy is that the issues identified in it are still as relevant today as they were when the article was first published; and, in fact, may have gotten worse. (Note that in the original there was a publisher error in the first letter of the author’s last name on the first page of the article, hence the spelling appears in it as Yulat.) This article should be read in conjunction with the document titled “Foreign Aid and Higher Education in Africa: With a Special Focus on the World Bank” (available here on slideshare.net), by the same author, because some of the theoretical issues pertaining to economics of education that appear in this article are covered in greater detail in that document.
