I am a writer and researcher who has worked primarily on the issue of low-fee private schooling for the poor in developing countries. My first book, Low-fee Private Schooling and Poverty in Developing Countries, will be released by Bloomsbury Academic in January 2021. I have just started working on my second book, tentatively titled Factory Schooling and the Global Education Industry.

 

I am an infrequent blogger mostly on issues of non-state schooling in India. However, I find myself increasingly drawn to focus on how the history of the British Empire has impacted the world and continues to impact the UK and the world now and into the future.

I am Visiting Research Fellow at the Centre for International Education, University of Sussex.

I am also a Teaching Fellow in education and international development at Moray House School of Education, as well as Honorary Fellow at the Centre of African Studies, University of Edinburgh.

I am a signatory of the Abidjan Principles.
