Book Review: Education and Empowered Citizenship in Mali by Jaimie Bleck

In the introduction to her book, Education and Empowered Citizenship in Mali, Jaimie Bleck draws on Western political science theories and a rich bibliography as she describes the evolution of education in Mali. The book addresses three key research questions:

  1. How does attending school shape citizens’ capacities and willingness to engage in politics?
  2. Do all schooling experiences shape students’ political knowledge and engagement in the same way?
  3. What is the impact of a child’s education on parents’ political engagement? How does exposure to different types of schooling communities affect parents’ political behavior? (150)
