POLICY BRIEF – School Rationalization Baseline Study: The Situation of Crowded and Underutilized Schools in Jordan

The findings presented in this policy brief aim to stimulate a policy level debate about the extent to which crowdedness and underutilization continue to be an issue in Jordan.

Although the overall number of crowded and underutilized schools has decreased in the last three years, some important trends in crowdedness and underutilization persist: Jordan continues to have a large percentage of schools that are overcrowded and an even larger percentage of schools with excess capacity.
