Excited to share this open-access book on the politics of education quality, published by Oxford University Press. My chapter examines education quality and policymaking in Rwanda, focusing on the relationship between teacher training and the English language policy. It is a really great book that makes an important contribution to understanding the relationship between politics and education quality reform. The book is edited by Manchester’s Sam Hickey and Naomi Hossain, both of whom have really helped my thinking progress on how to approach the study of policy and policymaking. The volume features many scholars from the Global South as well as contributions from pioneers in the study of politics and education, including Harvard’s Lant Pritchett and Merilee Grindle.
