Family Background as a Factor on Giving up the Opportunity to Go to College in China
Wei, Jianguo; Loyalka, Prashant; Song, Yingquan
European Journal of Higher Education, v1 n4 p382-395 2011
Based on findings from a field survey, this article presents an empirical analysis of the relationship between the family background of Chinese high school graduates and their tendency to give up the opportunity to go to college or other forms of Higher Education (HE). The multinomial logistic regression results indicate that family background has significant influences on a high school graduates' choice to give up the opportunity to go to college. These findings suggest that further surveys into the inequity of the opportunities of attending college, which are related to family background, should be carried out, and from them certain measures be undertaken to address this issue.
