Abstract

Policymakers frequently use education as a welfare policy instrument. But can these policies have unintended consequences? Christos Genakos and Eleni Kyrkopoulou present findings from a case study in Greece where a social policy aimed at helping poor families and alleviating inequality has had a counterproductive effect by lowering the academic performance of other students.
