In 2014, the Privatisation in Education Research Initiative (PERI) and Young Lives jointly commissioned a number of policy-oriented research papers using school survey data from the Young Lives longitudinal study of childhood poverty in Ethiopia, India, Peru and Vietnam. The findings of these diverse studies reflect on the manner and extent to which the varied supply of schooling types and private tutoring influences the pivotal role education has to play in societal development and building sustainable futures for all. The seven papers, written by education researchers from the four study countries, are now available on the links below:
