This chapter focuses on understanding distributional equity of access to quality schooling in a comparative framework, using Young Lives data from Vietnam and Peru. These two countries provide examples of somewhat different educational systems and contexts ? in particular the vast majority of pupils in Vietnam attend government schools near their homes with many common features including common curricula and textbooks, while in Peru children attend a more heterogeneous range of schools including government and private, monolingual and bilingual schools.
The final published version of the chapter is available on the publisher's website.
