Summary
"While researching private schools in India, Tooley wandered into the slums of Hyderbad's Old City. He found it overflowing with small, parent-funded schools and set out to discover if they could help achieve universal education. This is the story of Tooley's travels in developing countries and of the children, parents, teachers and entrepreneurs who taught him that the poor are not waiting for educational handouts. They are building their own schools and learning to save themselves"--From publisher description
