Governance and Education
We assess how various educational interventions affect students’ educational attainment. In highly violent areas of Mexico, we look at how violence impacts students’ cognitive and non-cognitive skills, the relationship between dropouts and violence, the incidence of gang activity near schools, and the impact of government policies that target violence in schools. In the Mexican state of Puebla, we are helping to pilot a set of educational computer programs to see if they can improve children’s learning curve and cognitive skills. In indigenous regions of Mexico, we look at the impact that indigenous language education has on community development.
