This research project explored the ways in which both the achievement and the developmental impact of the goal of Universal Primary Education (UPE) rely on strengthening of systems for post-basic education and training (PBET). In reviewing the policies, institutions, and experience in six countries (India, Ghana, Rwanda, Kenya, South Africa, Tanzania), the researchers sought policy-relevant lessons concerning the ways in which the poverty reducing benefits of basic education depend on PBET's contributions to an enabling environment.
