This study is part of the Africa Technical Department's contribution to this effort. Based on a review of recent literature, it provides a summary of the state of knowledge of the factors constraining girls' schooling in Sub-Saharan Africa. It also presents an outline of how this accumulated knowledge can be used in practical ways to facilitate the design of programs to accelerate female participation in education in the region.
