Analyzing the Effects of Neo Liberal Policy on Primary Female Education Enrollment in Africa
The Journal of Global Business Management
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.
