Why Do Daughters Leave School in Southern Africa? Family Economy and Mothers' Commitments.
Fuller, Bruce; And Others
Social Forces, v74 n2 p657-81 Dec 1995
In Tswana villages in Botswana, 122 mothers of secondary-school-age daughters were interviewed. Maternal attitudes toward fertility, child rearing, and schooling were more influential in explaining daughters' propensity to leave school than were generic facets of the family economy framework. However, maternal influences were conditioned by level of discretionary time afforded to daughters. Contains 54 references. (Author/SV)
