Book Review: Education and International Development: Theory, Practice and Issues
Education has been a driving force for developmental activities in all spheres associated with human development. Development as a phenomenon can acquire many forms, depending upon nature, cause and purpose. However, the relation of education to development is manyfold. It can be construed, in other words, that the role and contribution of education in development is crucial and immense. The current book, Education and international development, by Clive Harber, tries to define the concept of development from an international perspective and links it with educational interventions at different levels in the developing world.
