Job Training Programs: A Synopsis toward the Expansion of Educational Capacity and Youth Development in the Dominican Republic

The links between education and poverty levels have been proven in many instances. And to attack poverty at its core, there is definitely this necessity to position development strategies and discourses beyond the current rational driving market mechanisms.

And to step further into those configurations, the arguments viewing education as “Public Goods” are interesting proposals by highlighting the case for social provisioning, and the needs associated with basic capabilities, and access to educational opportunities.
As an interesting case in Poverty Reduction Strategies (PRS) and education, the expansion of the Dominican Republic Youth Development Program can provide and arm systematic reviews to document “What Works” in the balance between policy implementation and budgeting operations to attain realistic levels in public expenditures and provisioning in public services.
These are fundamental issues to assess the country’s economic choices when it comes to the balance between equity and efficiency, and how far is the government willing to go vis-à-vis the costs and intrumentations of incentives gearing toward the expansion of social schemes.
