The relationship between children’s cognitions and later educational progress in rural South Africa: a longitudinal study

Abstract:
Background: Children in low and middle-income countries (LMIC) who remain in school have better health and employment outcomes. South Africa, like many LMIC, has a secondary school completion rate under 50%, leaving room for improvement if we can identify factors that affect educational attainment. This is the first longitudinal study to examine the effects of childhood mental health and cognitions on educational outcomes in LMIC.
