Targeted programmes in the education sector are those that are not universal (ie that the beneficiaries are only a segment of the population) either because by its very nature a programme is meant to help a specific group (eg cash transfers to poor families to help them meet the various types of costs associated with education) or because the State does not have enough resources to provide at this stage to everybody in the education system


Transparency about the criteria for targeted programmes is necessary to ensure that the implementation of those programmes is not discriminatory and to enable civil society to hold the government accountable for them
