[MLE] EdQual research on Medium of Instruction

Dear MLE friends,

Research outside of the western countries on the impact of education in the mother tongue is much needed. Below are some links to research presently going on in Africa.
 
EdQual is a research project consortium funded by DfID, studying education quality in low-income countries. On 15 November, it reported to DfID and other interested agencies along with 2 other research project consortia. As part of the EdQual programme, colleagues from Ghana and Tanzania looked into issues of medium of instruction and its relation to quality of learning. If you are interested in interim findings to do with MoI and textbook accessibility, please use the following links:

Thanks to Pam Mackenzie for the tip.
Shalom,
Karsten
