Education Policy Brief: A guide to what works in policy and practice

Education offers some of the best policy options available for tackling long-term poverty, and is the single best means of preventing the transmission of intergenerational poverty. This Policy Brief makes the case that smart interventions can make rapid, permanent inroads on poverty and inequality reduction, boosting upward mobility and social inclusion. These policy interventions can be strategic, cost-effective and sustainable and when applied at key stages in the life cycle can greatly improve the lives of chronically poor children.
