Dear Flavio,

Things seem to have improved over time -- from the start of Bolsa Escola, then becoming Bolsa Familia, then within Bolsa Familia. The publications we have access to, (including the Fiszbein and Schady, 2009, book on CCTs summarizing conditions and monitoring for each program), suggest that in the early days monitoring was less than perfect, and almost no one was penalized and that this changed over time. You seem to be referring to the current situation, which may be quite different than what is relevant for the periods evaluated in the publications eligible for our systematic review.
