What do Tanzanian parents want from primary schools—and what can be done about it?

RISE researchers ran a ‘discrete choice’ experiment among parents of school-aged children. They find: Parents’ choices are driven by proximity and learning quality, with little additional role for class sizes or infrastructure quality. Parents’ willingness to walk for learning outcomes— their tradeoff between distance and quality—varies widely by region. Regional variation in willingness to walk for learning is not reflected in the mix of services provided by the school system.
