The Director of the Teacher Education program at New College of California is seeking information about girls' primary school education in developing countries. What strategies have been successful in getting girls into school and keeping them there. Information needed for an upcoming project in Guatemala.

Per your note to FEMINIST.COM and your query about "girls' primary school education in developing countries," I suggest that you contact Grassroots International which is based in Cambridge, MA. They have done work on "primary education." I know that they have recently done work in Eritrea, East Africa. Although I can't remember any "girl specific" programs they have done, I imagine that this has been something they have explored. Also, there is the Bernard Van Leer Foundation based in The Hague, Holland (email: registry@bvleerf.nl). Their focus in "primary education" and they are very active in developing countries. Good luck and I hope this helps.
