Abstract:

Most countries' education policies make raising average student performance their priority. Yet just as in the football World Cup, the quality of the top performers is the key to competing successfully at the global level. Lant Pritchett and Martina Viarengo explore this challenge in the particular context of policy-making in Mexico.
