Interventions in developing nations for improving primary and secondary school enrolments

3ie Systematic review 03

Anthony Petrosino, Claire Morgan, Trevor A Fronius, Emily E Tanner-Smith, and Robert F Boruch

This systematic review by Petrosino and colleagues assesses and synthesises the evidence on the effects of school enrollment policies and programmes in developing countries on enrollment, persistence and learning outcomes. The authors included studies assessing the effects of interventions implemented in low- or middle-income countries on enrollment, attendance, drop-out rates or progression. The authors find that the interventions increase primary- and secondary-school enrollment, attendance and progression. The interventions also improve maths and language achievement more than standardised test performance and other achievement measures.
