Money to Bear the Indirect Costs of Schooling

Chapter

Abstract

Chapter 5 brings up the story of a not so prominent and yet very promising conditional cash transfer: the Subsidios program. It was adopted by Bogota’s city government and, throughout its short life, combined characteristics that, from an educational perspective, make it a very interesting case. The chapter also reveals how the political dynamics between Bogota’s government and Colombia’s national government restricted the international promotion of the program, even by the international development bank that had lent the money for its creation.
