Increased enrollment or achievement? The impact of conditional cash transfers for education in Brazil, Mexico, and beyond

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This study explores the relationship between increased enrollment in Brazil and Mexico--resulting from allocation of conditional cash transfers (CCTs)--and educational achievement in recipient populations. Research will include a meta-analysis of existing literature on the effectiveness of CCTs in conjunction with interviews of NGOs and recipients of CCTs in said countries in examining the question: how do CCTs improve educational achievement in relevant populations? Brazil and Mexico are selected intentionally as they are labeled first generation CCT implementers; their programs were the first in the world, introduced in the late 1990s. While these two countries are similar in their years of existence, they differ in requirements and stringency of conditionality. The aggregation of the Mexico and Brazil approaches will offer an interesting lens in analyzing the contextual appropriateness of borrowing and lending this policy to other countries, and especially lower socioeconomic urban centers in American cities.
