Charter School Entry and School ChoiceKosenok, Grigory; Ferreyra, Maria Marta (World Bank, Washington, DC, 2015-08-17)This paper develops and estimates an
equilibrium model of charter school entry and school choice.
In the model, households choose among public, private, and
charter schools, and a regulator authorizes charter entry
and mandates charter exit. The model is estimated for
Washington, D.C. According to the estimates, charters
generate net social gains by providing additional school
options, and they benefit non-white, low-income, and
middle-school students the most. Further, policies that
raise the supply of prospective charter entrants in
combination with high authorization standards enhance social welfare.
Pakistan--Tracing the Flow of Public MoneyWorld Bank Group (World Bank, Islamabad, 2016-07-14)The main objective of the report is to provide recommendations
for policy makers and sector managers to help improve service delivery
and the resultant outcomes in primary education. The fundamental
premise of this analysis stems from Punjab Social Sector Public Expenditure
Review conducted in FY2013.
Does Cash for School Influence Young Women’s Behavior in the Longer Term? Evidence from PakistanAlam, Andaleeb; Baez, Javier E.; Del Carpio, Ximena V. (2012-03-19)The Punjab Female School Stipend
Program, a female-targeted conditional cash transfer program
in Pakistan, was implemented in response to gender gaps in
education. An early evaluation of the program shows that the
enrollment of eligible girls in middle school increased in
the short term by nearly 9 percentage points. This paper
uses regression discontinuity and difference-in-difference
analyses to show that five years into the program
implementation positive impacts do persist. Beneficiary
adolescent girls are more likely to progress through and
complete middle school and work less. There is suggestive
evidence that participating girls delay their marriage and
have fewer births by the time they are 19 years old. Girls
who are exposed to the program later, and who are eligible
for the benefits given in high school, increase their rates
of matriculating into and completing high school. The
persistence of impacts can potentially translate into gains
in future productivity, consumption, inter-generational
human capital accumulation and desired fertility. Lastly,
there is no evidence that the program has negative spillover
effects on educational outcomes of male siblings.
