Item description for Inexcusable Absence by Maureen A. Lewis & Marlaine E. Lockheed...
In Inexcusable Absence, Maureen Lewis and Marlaine Lockheed show that nearly three quarters of the 60 million girls not in school belong to ethnic, religious, linguistic, racial, or other minorities. Getting these girls into school requires new strategies that directly address their broader exclusion from society. Drawing on detailed analysis of what is already working in both developed and developing countries, and emphasizing both the lack of household "demand" and the socially restricted "supply" of schooling for excluded groups, Inexcusable Absence offers concrete proposals for new policies and programs.
