Assessing basic education service delivery in the Philippines: the Philippines Public Education Expenditure Tracking and Quantitative Service Delivery Study

Organization : World Bank, Australian Aid

Imprint : World Bank, 2016

The purpose of this study is to assess the quality of basic education services and the systems used to allocate and manage public education resources. While small-scale qualitative studies have been conducted to look at particular public funding flows, there has been no previous attempt to comprehensively assess the strengths and weaknesses of the systems that manage and govern the use of public education funding. This study aims to fill this gap and to provide detailed evidence on the extent to which these systems are effective in handling key items of public spending. The study also aims to provide a snapshot of the availability and quality of key education inputs at the school level and to evaluate whether these resources are distributed equitably across schools. The outline of the report provides the context of the study and documents recent trends in basic education spending. It also shows in detail how recent spending increases have affected education outcomes.
