    This paper analyzes the effects of Uganda’s universal secondary education policy on households and schools. The policy provides schools with a per-pupil capitation grant. The authors found that receipt of the capitation grants has increased substantially for most students and is associated with a 60 percent reduction in household spending on education per child. In addition, no evidence was found that the policy boosted school attendance or retention.
