Abstract

This is the protocol for a systematic review examining the question: Are contract and para-teachers a cost effective intervention to address teacher shortages and improve learning outcomes? It encompasses the three sub-questions:

(1) How effective are contract teachers at imparting learning when compared to regular teachers?
(2) What are the relative costs of regular and contract teachers, and hence their cost effectiveness?
(3) To what extent do contract teachers succeed in addressing teacher shortages?
