Spill-over effects show prioritizing education of very poorest improves attainment of all

International development projects that target the education of the world’s very poorest children also significantly improve other young people’s attainment, research indicates. The findings are based on a study of a program targeting marginalized girls in Tanzania, which showed the attainment of other boys and girls at these pupils’ schools significantly improved through ‘spill-over’ effects. For every $100 spent per girl, all students made the equivalent of two years of learning gains.
