Indigenous people and poverty in Latin America : an empirical analysis by George Psacharopoulos( Book )
29 editions published between 1993 and 1999 in 3 languages and held by 479 libraries worldwide
This paper represents an initial attempt at documenting the socioeconomic conditions of indigenous peoples using empirical data from national survey sources. The nature of the analysis is microeconomic, using households survey data that include information on indigenous people defined in terms of ethnic self-perception, language use and geographical concentration. The countries on which the analysis is based include Bolivia, Guatemala, Mexico and Peru.-- Abstract

Indigenous peoples, poverty, and human development in Latin America by Gillette Hall( Book )
13 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 267 libraries worldwide
"Indigenous peoples constitute a large and distinct portion of Latin America's population. They are more likely to be poor than any other group. This book documents their socioeconomic situation, and trends over the last decade, and shows that while progress has been achieved in some social indicators, indigenous peoples continue to be poor. The book uses as a baseline information collected at the start of the International Decade of the World's Indigenous Peoples, and updates the findings with new information, techniques and analyses. The book assesses changes in poverty rates, human development indicators and examines the impact of education, health and social programmes on indigenous peoples' wellbeing. Set within the context of ongoing political changes, this volume reviews the literature of indigenous peoples and provides a statistical overview of indigenous populations in Bolivia, Ecuador, Guatemala, Mexico and Peru, examining changes in poverty rates, education levels, income determinants, labour force participation and other social indicators. The results show that, while improvements have been achieved in some social indicators, little progress has been made with respect to poverty."--Jacket

Decentralization of education : demand-side financing by Harry Anthony Patrinos( Book )
18 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in 3 languages and held by 200 libraries worldwide
Mobilizing the private sector for public education : a view from the trenches ( Book )
15 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 183 libraries worldwide
Historically, ensuring access to primary education has been seen as a predominantly public responsibility. However, governments are increasingly sharing this responsibility through a variety of subsidiary arrangements. Some governments are contracting services out to the private sector, to non-governmental organizations, and even to other public agencies. Some societies are transferring responsibility for financing, providing, and regulating primary education to lower levels of government, and in some cases, to communities. In education policy, public-private partnerships play an important rol
The role and impact of public-private partnerships in education by Harry Anthony Patrinos( Book )
10 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 149 libraries worldwide
The book offers an overview of international examples, studies, and guidelines on how to create successful partnerships in education. PPPs can facilitate service delivery and lead to additional financing for the education sector as well as expanding equitable access and improving learning outcomes
Emerging evidence on vouchers and faith-based providers by Felipe Barrera Osorio( Book )
16 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 135 libraries worldwide
While public-private partnerships in education in the United States have received a lot of attention, research on such partnerships elsewhere has been limited-even though such partnerships have been steadily gaining prominence, particularly in developing
Making schools work : new evidence on accountability reforms by Barbara Bruns( Book )
9 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 135 libraries worldwide
This book is about the threats to education quality in the developing world that cannot be explained by lack of resources. It reviews the observed phenomenon of service delivery failures in public education: cases where programs and policies increase the inputs to education but do not produce effective services where it counts - in schools and classrooms. It documents what we know about the extent and costs of such failures across low and middle-income countries. And it further develops the conceptual model posited in the World Development Report 2004: that a root cause of low-quality and ineq
The role of the private sector in education in Vietnam : evidence from the Vietnam Living Standards Survey by Paul Glewwe( Book )

Indigenous Peoples In Latin America Economic Opportunities And Social Networks by Harry Anthony Patrinos( file )
10 editions published in 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 59 libraries worldwide
Despite significant changes in poverty overall in Latin America, the proportion of indigenous peoples living in poverty did not change much from the early 1990s to the present. While earlier work focused on human development, much less has been done on the distribution and returns to income-generating assets and the effect these have on income generation strategies. The authors show that low income and low assets are mutually reinforcing. For instance, low education levels translate into low income, resulting in poor health and reduced schooling for future generations. Social networks affect the economic opportunities of individuals through two important channels-information and norms. However, the analysis shows that the networks available to indigenous peoples do not facilitate employment in nontraditional sectors
Empowering Parents To Improve Education Evidence From Rural Mexico by Paul Gertler( file )
8 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 58 libraries worldwide
Mexico's compensatory education program provides extra resources to primary schools that enroll disadvantaged students in highly disadvantaged rural communities. One of the most important components of the program is the school-based management intervention known as AGEs. The impact of the AGEs is assessed on intermediate school quality indicators (failure, repetition and dropout), controlling for the presence of the conditional cash transfer program. Results prove that school-based management is an effective measure for improving outcomes, based on an over time difference-in-difference evaluation. Complementary qualitative evidence corroborates the veracity of such findings

Estimating the returns to education : accounting for heterogeneity in ability by Harry Anthony Patrinos( Book )
7 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 28 libraries worldwide
Typically estimates of the benefits of education investments show average private rates of return for the average individual. The average may not be useful for policy. An examination of the distribution of the returns across individuals is needed. The few studies that have examined these patterns focus on high-income countries, showing investments to be more profitable at the top of the income distribution. The implication is that investments may increase inequality. Extending the analysis to 16 East Asian and Latin American countries the authors observe mixed evidence in middle-income countries and decreasing returns in low-income countries. Such differences between countries could be due to more job mobility in industrial countries, scarcity of skills, or differential exposure to market forces
Incidence analysis of public support to the private education sector in Côte d'Ivoire by Chris N Sakellariou( Book )
10 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 27 libraries worldwide
Abstract: Sakellariou and Patrinos analyze the equity effects of public subsidization of private schools in Côte d'Ivoire, update previous analyses, and attempt to assess how efficiently public spending is targeted. The subsidy per student in private (and public) schools increases at higher quintiles. Students from families in the highest quintile receive more than twice the subsidy received by students from families in the lowest quintile, compared with four times more in the case of students attending public schools. However, the subsidy system is progressive as there is a clear tendency for the share of family education expenditure covered by subsidies to decline at higher quintiles. This element of progressivity is stronger in the case of private school attendance. This paper"a product of the Education Sector Unit, Latin America and the Caribbean Region"is part of a larger effort in the region to evaluate education policies
Estimating the returns to education in Argentina : 1992-2002 by Paula Ines Giovagnoli( Book )
5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 25 libraries worldwide
The authors estimate returns to schooling in urban Argentina for a 10-year period. In addition to comparable earnings functions, they also estimate the returns using quantile regression analysis to detect differences in the returns across the distribution. Over time, men in higher quantiles have higher returns to schooling compared with those in the lower quantiles. For women, returns are highest at the lowest quantile. The returns to education increased during the past decade. The authors do not rule out that increased demand for skills is driving the increasing returns over the decade

Rising returns to schooling in Argentina, 1992-2002 : productivity or credentialism? by Maria Paula Savanti( Book )
8 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 22 libraries worldwide
"There has not been much change in the premium to primary education, while the returns to secondary education increased, but by less than the premium to university. The returns to incomplete university also increased significantly. There is a signal that there might be credentialism at the tertiary level, but 15 years of schooling also represents a significant threshold. The returns to schooling are higher in the private sector. There is little evidence of screening or credentialism driving the returns to schooling, which increased significantly in Argentina from 1992 to 2002."
Decentralized decision-making in schools : the theory and evidence on school-based management by Felipe Barrera Osorio( Book )
6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
An increasing number of developing countries are introducing School-Based Management (SBM) reforms aimed at empowering principals and teachers or at strengthening their professional motivation, thereby enhancing their sense of ownership of the school. Many of these reforms have also strengthened parental involvement in the schools, sometimes by means of school councils. SBM programs take many different forms in terms of who has the power to make decisions as well as the degree of ecision-making devolved to the school level. While some programs transfer authority only to school principals or te
