Student Outcomes in Philippine Elementary Schools: An Evaluation of Four Experiments

The DIP project team, which was part of the Bureau of Elementary Education, followed a three-stage procedure in selecting schools for the interventions. They first identified five regions of the country and, within each region, two districts that met the official definition of a low-income municipality (the municipality had to meet at least three of five poverty criteria relating to education, health, housing, unemployment, and household consumption). The sample schools were located in 10 provinces: Mindoro Oriental and Palawan in Southern Luzon Region, Camarines Sur and Sorsogon in Bicol Region, Iloilo and Negros Occidental in Western Visayas Region, Northern Samar and Western Samal in Eastern Visayas Region and North Cotabato and Maguindanao in Central Mindanao Region
