This article uses data from three programs in Latin America to obtain evidence of their impact on educational inequality of opportunity, measured using primary enrollment. The main results indicate that groups considered vulnerable gain more in terms of access to education and that these in-terventions help level the playing field. They do not eliminate inequality of opportunity but are certainly a useful complement to equity-enhancing policies
