Poverty and proximate barriers to learning : vision deficiencies, vision correction and educational outcomes in rural northwest China.

Abstract

Few studies of educational barriers in developing countries have investigated the role of children’s vision problems, despite the self-evident challenge that poor vision poses to classroom learning and the potential for a simple ameliorative intervention. We address this gap with an analysis of two datasets from Gansu Province, a highly impoverished province in northwest China.
