Identify and analyze successful models of Secondary Education, particularly those from OECD countries which achieve outstanding results in terms of quality and equity of student learning and high transition rates to higher education and employment of its graduates. 2. Identify and characterize best practices in effective secondary schools, namely those which achieve high learning outcomes (controling for the socioeconomic level of its students) and high graduation rates. Analyze their characteristics (in terms of curricula, target population, student seleccion, teacher selection and development, pedagogy, monitoring and evaluation of student competencies, principales and school leadership, counseling and career orientation of students, links to the local comunity and employers). To analyze best practices and derive lessons and policy implications for programs aimed at improving secondary school results, both in terms of student learning/competencies as well as in terms of graduation rates and successful transition of graduates to higher education or the labor market.

The Role of Agents and the Nature of Limitations in the Performance of Development Projects
Development practitioners aspire to improve lives, but achieving results is challenging. What prevents operations from achieving their objectives? Answering this question is critical to promote success. This Discussion Paper proposes to analyze operations first to identify if they faced limitations to effectiveness, then to identify which key stakeholders faced those limitations, and finally, whether such limitations were exogenous. Such an approach may strengthen accountability and learning. An analysis of 62 project completion reports evaluated in 2022 by the Inter-American Development Bank shows that success was contingent upon critical agents performance and the influence of exogenous factors. Four in 10 operations that failed had agents other than the executing agency face challenges. The same share of operations had agents face limitations derived from the project environment or third-party inputs beyond their control. Despite limitations, the proposed framework may provide insights for future work that promotes effectiveness.

Research Insights: Do Better-Connected Community Members Benefit More from Subsidized Credit?
More powerful and less productive households, both in terms of wealth and connections, ended up obtaining more credit from a community-based lending program. Informal markets partially attenuated these targeting distortions by redirecting credit from connected to unconnected households, albeit at higher rates. Despite the targeting distortions, a community-based approach may still be more appealing than other centralized criteria to target credit. Eliminating the connection-based advantage may lead to village-level gains in terms of equity and output.
