Tyler Cowen asks for references on education in developing countries

Tyler Cowen's post

There are lot of links in the comments. My two cents. I wonder whether education in developing countries can be disassociated with education in America and Americal influence particularly through foundations. There is an old book of Edward Breman which discusses this; relavent parts from the book here:

There is a more recent paper by Jayant Krishnan which discusses the American influence on Indian legal education:

There is also an article by David Warsh on the influence of foundations in American business education
