Designing Targeted Educational Voucher Schemes for the Poor in Developing Countries
Shafiq, M. Najeeb
Online Submission
Targeted educational voucher schemes [TEVS] are often proposed for poor children in developing countries. This article explores the design of an effective TEVS using three policy instruments: regulation, support services, and finance. The regulation design addresses the rules that must be adhered to by participating households, children, and schools. The support services design considers the complementary services for all participants and financial and political supporters. The finance design addresses the value of each voucher, total TEVS costs, and sources of finance. Overall, this article provides a foundation for evidence-based evaluations to support, modify, or oppose a particular TEVS. (Contains 2 footnotes.)
