In a growing number of countries, a significant reform in educational management is under way: schools which in earlier years had very little or no say in financial management now receive grants directly from central authorities. The actual impact of school grants on quality and equity needs deeper investigation because it is strongly influenced by the design and implementation of grants; the simple existence of such grants does not guarantee success.
IIEP-UNESCO  and UNICEF coordinated a research programme in Eastern and Southern Africa from
2010  to 2012,  in order to better understand  how the school grants policy is  implemented in and by different schools, and to learn what its real contribution is to the grand policy objectives it is intended to serve. The research covered Ethiopia, Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi, and Uganda, through a collaboration with Ministries of Education, national research institutes, and the Centre for Education Policy Development (CEPD, South-Africa).
