The following graph shows that the allocation of resources of Guatemala’s 'Scholarships for Girls' established to reduce the staggering repetition and desertion rates of first grade girls, has often been skewed. Some of the municipalities with a relatively low number of girls dropping out of school after first grade in 2005 received a large number of 'Scholarships for Girls' the following year. In other municipalities with much higher levels of girl deserters after first grade, received fewer scholarships the following year.
