How is Equity in Resource Allocation Related to Student Performance?

  • How educational resources are allocated is just as important as the amount of resources available.
  • High-performing countries and economies tend to allocate resources more equitably across socio-economically advantaged and disadvantaged schools.
  • Among the countries with better-resourced schools, as reported by principals, equity in resource allocation is not related to the overall quality of resources.
