What Works to Improve Secondary Education in Developing Countries

literature review released by the Partnership to Strengthen Innovation and Practice in Secondary Education, supported by MacArthur, summarizes evidence on approaches to increasing participation, improving learning, and enhancing the relevance of secondary education in developing countries. The review, conducted by Mathematica Policy Research, found there to be few promising evidence-based practices in the field and calls for more research into the role of teachers, communities, and families in encouraging a successful transition from primary to secondary education.
