Understanding gender relations and the experiences and needs of the poorest boys and girls are all important areas of policy and practice. The forms of political and economic power in a society might mean that these particular areas of policy and practice are neglected in a general focus on national achievements or enrolling more girls. The challenge remains to understand the complexity of gendered power in local settings and the educational conditions that can support change and provide quality schooling. Work such as gender budgeting can ensure that budgetary support adequately reaches the lowest quintiles, or privileges the gender equality aspects of quality. The exercise of hierarchies of power is particularly acute in relation to the provision of quality education.
