This book looks at the relationship beween decentralization of funding of schools and the prevalence of corruption, a crucial concern for education policymakers today. The monograph is based on the assumption that formula funding acts to reduce the likelihood of fraud, as one of its essential elements, is public accessibility to information. Transparency puts pressure on those in positions of responsibility to conform to regulations, since the chance of detection is much higher and the consequences of misappropriation are greater. The authors examine four countries at different stages of decentralization of school finance and management.
