What Criteria Should Policymakers Use for Assisting Households with Educational Expenditure? The Case of Urban Bangladesh
Shafiq, M. Najeeb
Online Submission
Low household expenditure on education compromises the learning and future labor market prospects of children. This study provides an empirical framework for determining the criteria that South Asian policymakers can use for assisting households with educational expenditure. A case study of urban Bangladesh using tobit and hurdle regression models indicate that households in the bottom two per-capita quartiles should receive priority as recipients of policy assistance. Other criteria include households with parents who have not completed primary schooling, and households with boys, older children, and multiple children of school-going age. (Contains 3 tables, 1 figure, and 5 footnotes.) [This study was supported by a Proffitt Grant from Indiana University.]
