This report examines evidence on the role of school environments and different pedagogical approaches in boosting girls’ empowerment and academic outcomes. It probes evidence on how these changes associated with school attendance take place, and the factors that can undermine these change processes, such as limited economic opportunities or rigid gender norms. One section brings together qualitative and quantitative evidence on school-based girls' clubs and examines their impact on both learning and broader empowerment outcomes.
