---- Acknowledgments ----

We thank Felipe Gonzalez for research assistance and Jessica Harrison for helpful comments. Baird, Hamory Hicks, Kremer, and Miguel gratefully acknowledge support from the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health & Human Development (Grant Number R01HD044475). In the interests of transparency around potential conflicts of interest, we note that USAID and the Douglas B. Marshall, Jr. Family Foundation support deworming. Also, Amrita Ahuja is the chair of the board of Evidence Action, a nonprofit organization which supports governments in scaling mass school-based deworming programs. This is a voluntary position with no associated remuneration. The content of this article is solely the responsibility of the authors, and does not necessarily represent the official views of the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health & Human Development, the U.S. National Institutes of Health, USAID, the Douglas B. Marshall, Jr. Family Foundation, Evidence Action, or the National Bureau of Economic Research.
