Interesting piece from the World Bank

 The link below is to a very interesting post on the World Bank’s Education for Global Development blog. It talks about how in “education, as well as in other areas of public policy, the pressure to show results (and to justify budgets) creates strong incentives to report on positive stories over and above those showing a lack of results.”

This is known as publication bias. The post explains the phenomenon as “studies with positive results are more likely to be published than those with negative results.”
