About the publication

This paper centers on: the nature of migration and how to assess it, what happens to migrants in rural areas (citing statistics on Bostwana and Tanzania), the solutions and the role of education. Suggestions for eliminating urban unemployment generally include encouraging a decline in the rural-urban migration via educational ruralization, while this study suggests that unless a radical change reduces rural-urban disparities, ruralizing education will either fail to stop the urban influx or succeed partially in legitimizing inequality of opportunity (from ERIC database)
