Conditional cash transfers and effects on education

Abstract:

This paper will explore school vouchers, specifically looking at conditional cash transfers (cct’s) in Latin America, with a focus on the Brazilian program of Bolsa Familia and their influences on education. Looking specifically at CCT’s in Brazil (funded through both the Brazilian government and NGO’s) it is my research objective to study the program’s effects on teachers and school systems. CCT’s provide financial incentives for students to attend public education, however, through such programs limited improvements have been made to the public education system. Thus the question remains how to bridge the gap between an increase in student access as well as providing students with a quality education. For example, as a result of Bolsa Familia Brazil has reported a significant increase in student enrollment with fewer resources and materials available to teach this population. It is necessary to examine how teachers and school systems respond to this change and whether other programs have made appropriate adjustments, and if not to also examine possible reasons why this change has not occurred.
Because the Brazilian system is relatively new and has been changed over the last 10 years, I also think it is important to do a comparison study, to evaluate the effects of similar policies in differing cultural contexts, such as the Chilean system of Chile Solidario, and the Mexican program Oportunidades. Because the Chilean and Mexican systems are older and thus more established it is the objective of my research to examine what adjustments if any have been made to the quality of education to schools, which receive conditional cash transfers.
