Prof. Enge's specialties include the design and use of monitoring systems to track the progress of education and health projects and the evaluation of projects, including formative, summative and the determination of sustainability into the future. His current work in education includes directing a three-year cross-national evaluation of the libraries donated to primary/secondary schools in Asia and Africa by Room to Read to determine the effects and attitudes toward reading and literacy involving both schools, parents and community leaders. The evaluation uses a multi-method combination of quantitative-qualitative methods and is being carried out in Laos, Nepal and Zambia. He is also in the process of completing a series of case studies in Rajasthan, India on private public partnerships (PPP) in education. These case studies involve CISCO, Educate Girls Globally, the Rajasthan ministry of Education, financed by USAID (under EQUIP1) and done in conjunction with the World Economic Forum. The objective is to determine what makes these partnerships successful and how access to and the quality of education can be improved. He uses examples from work in both education and health to show students the practical uses of the social sciences to address world problems.
