Sir John Graham Lecture 2010 | Grounds For Hope

The irrepressible success of community-led education for the poor

We want every child to have the opportunity to learn, but what is the best way to provide that? Conventional wisdom tells us it is about the state providing free schools for all. Yet remarkably, in the poorest communities across the globe, it is private education that really delivers. Parents and teachers in those places are growing innovative, caring schools from the ground up; teaching and nurturing the rising generation.

Professor James Tooley recounts stories of people who are harnessing their creativity and ingenuity to provide quality education to some of the poorest children in the world.
