Design and Operation for Cost-effectiveness
Drawing on experiences in a wide range of countries, this book highlights the advantages and problems of double-shift systems. Comparison is made with single-shift systems, and also with systems having triple or even quadruple shifts. The book will be useful both for national and regional policy-makers, and for headteachers and others responsible for running double-shift schools.
