Title: The Impact of Structural Adjustment Policies on the Education Systems of Developing Countries: A Comparative Study between Thailand and Malaysia after the Asian Financial Crisis
Author: Tableman, Leslie D., 1985-
Abstract: Education is an important tool in supporting the infrastructure of a country, so having quality and reliable education systems is critical to the success of developing countries in a global economy. In the face of international recessions and financial crises, many countries depend on bailout packages provided by international financial institutions such as the International Monetary Fund (lMF) and Worid Bank. The bailouts typically contain conditions, known as structural adjustment policies or programs, which require certain policy reforms of the accepting country. The goal of this paper is to investigate whether those conditions have a noticeable relationship to the delivery of education in developing countries. Specifically, this study looks at descriptive statistics surrounding educational indicators for Thailand, a country that accepted a bailout, and Malaysia, a country that declined a bailout, after the Asian Financial Crisis.
