School Policy: Implications of Recent Research for Human Capital Investments in South Asia and Other Developing Countries
Hanushek, Eric A.
Education Economics, v17 n3 p291-313 Sep 2009
Concentration on school attainment goals without close attention to school quality has hurt developing countries. Recent evidence shows that individual incomes, the distribution of income, and economic growth rates are all closely related to the cognitive skills of the population. While direct evidence from developing countries is thin, the evidence from developed countries points to the central importance of improving teacher quality in any reform strategies. (Contains 33 notes, 4 tables and 4 figures.)
