Education

This sub-section lists completed impact evaluations of projects in the education sector. There is a broad consensus that one of the most effective means of preventing children from entering child labour is to extend and strengthen schooling, so that families can have the opportunity to invest in their children’s education, and that the returns from schooling make it worthwhile for them to do so. More accessible and better quality schools affect the returns to schooling vis-à-vis child labour, making the former more attractive as an alternative to the latter.
