ES-T1282 : Children raised by grandparents in the Northern Triangle: Education policy responses. Phase I.
Project Status: Closed
Our study is the first to examine parenting practices in skipped-generation households in the Northern Triangle, and will analyze the effectiveness of parental training and social coping strategies on early learning outcomes. The objective is two-fold: (i) to understand the context of skipped-generation households in the Northern Triangle; and (ii) identify effective education interventions to assist this large group of children. The specific objective is to assess the cost-effectiveness of support to skipped-generation households with social coping strategies (Group I) vis-à-vis social coping strategy support combined with parental training (Group II). The project will be evaluated through a Randomized Control Trial (RCT), contrasting any changes in learning of children in the treatment groups with children from a group of comparison households.
