Double-shift Schooling

Design and Operation for Cost-effectiveness

image of Double-shift Schooling
Double-shift Schooling primarily aims to extend access and minimise unit costs. However, some systems only achieve those goals at the expense of educational quality. Policy-makers may be faced by difficult choices when designing systems.







Drawing on experiences in a wide range of countries, this book highlights the advantages and problems of double-shift systems. Comparison is made with single-shift systems, and also with systems having triple or even quadruple shifts. The book will be useful both for national and regional policy-makers, and for headteachers and others responsible for running double-shift schools.







This is the third edition of a book first published in 1989 and updated in 2000.

Foreword

This is the second edition of a book which was first published in 1989. The first edition was widely welcomed, and has been used as a tool for policy-makers and practitioners in a considerable range of countries. We were very pleased when Mark Bray expressed willingness to update and revise the book for re-publication, and anticipate that this edition will be as enthusiastically welcomed as the last.
