The one key factor in moving countries forward is good quality education: qualified, trained, housed and paid teachers, decent classrooms with the necessary resources and access by rural and urban boys and girls. Only then will we have healthy, productive populations able to contribute more effectively to economic growth and benefit from it and to hold governments to account.
This will take several generations to achieve - but how many governments would prefer to maintain the status quo so as to reduce criticism, continue their domination and sustain their vested interests? A tough development challenge!
