Reconceptualising access to education.


Access to education lies at the core of poverty reduction and is part of the definition of development. It is argued that an expanded vision of access moves policy dialogue beyond discourse based on enrolment rates. It is suggested that unpacking access into seven zones of exclusion helps reshape this dialogue, as does recognising the interactions between schools, local authorities, communities, households and individuals.
