Summary: This book examines how educational development happens. It analyzes the actions of policy makers and the decisions they make regarding educational change. Although the point of decision is an important one, equally important are the activities preceding it -- analysis, generation of options, bargaining, etc. -- and following it -- implementation, assessment, and possible redesign -- as well as the other participants in the process -- the consumers and providers of educational services. In order to capture this process of decision making the book introduces an analytical framework that unravels the predecision and postdecision activities. To provide a clearer understanding of the process, the framework is applied to case studies of policymaking in four countries : Burkina Faso, Jordan, Peru, and Thailand.
