Education as Liberation?

The Center for Effective Global Action's 2011 Evidence to Action symposium, “The Returns to Investment in Girls,” presented findings of several recent studies, each focused on early investments in girls that can lead to increased income generation and decision-making power in adulthood.  It also generated dialogue between researchers, policy makers, and donors to identify a learning agenda for the broader international development community. Ted and co-author Rebecca Thorton contributed to this dialogue by presenting the results of their paper Education as Liberation? (Other co-authors: Willa Friedman and Michael Kremer)
