While a number of studies have examined community schools in Zambia, there has not been a comprehensive overview since 2006. Many of these studies focus on a narrow topic within the field of community schools, or have small sample sizes that impede the ability to generalize broadly. Consequently, there is a need to synthesize findings across studies and data sources in order to present an accurate “big picture” and summarize the most important factors that will have bearing on current and future community school initiatives.

This study provides in-depth review of community schools, as they exist today, through the lens of two key questions:

  1. What common factors characterize community schools as compared to the other three types of schools in Zambia?
  2. To what extent do these unique community school factors support or hinder learning?
