RG-T2764 : Classmates, Resources, and the Market of Teachers: Lessons from Latin America and South Korea

Project Status: Implementation

This Technical Cooperation (TC) proposes to conduct a series of case studies both in Latin America and South Korea to then be able to provide a relevant and timely comparative analysis of the effects that different student and teacher assignment mechanisms (to classrooms and schools) have on student academic performance and future trajectory. Now that enrollment in primary school is almost universal in several countries in the Latin American and Caribbean region (Bassi, Busso and Muñoz, 2015), the current pressing challenges are improving learning and access to quality education at the lowest cost. The research generated under this TC will thus be an important input in the design of cost-effective policies with these two goals in mind that can build on the existing systems of teachers and students allocations to schools and classrooms. The objectives and activities included in this TC are closely linked to the goals of the Sector Framework Document of Education and Early Childhood Development, as well as the Strategy on Social Policy for Equity and Productivity.
