Abstract

This article investigates the impact of the economic changes associated with the neo-liberal policies on female primary education rates in Africa. Employing a polynomial panel-data regression from 1997-2010, and using Freedom Index Scores provided by the Heritage Foundation as a proxy for the measure of neo-liberal economic policies, as well as other indicators for openness, we find that neo-liberal policy negatively impacts female primary education enrollment in Africa.
