Private Education in a Poor Country: The Case of Urban Bolivia.
Psacharopoulos, George; Arieira, Carlos R.; Mattson, Robert
Economics of Education Review, v16 n4 p395-406 Oct 1997
Disputes claims that private education is highly selective and unaffordable. Examines extent of private expenditure on education in Bolivia, a very poor country whose public education system is characterized by low teacher salaries, unqualified teachers, few textbooks, and high dropout and repetition rates. Using 1990 and 1992 household survey data, shows Bolivian parents' remarkable willingness to pay for private education for their children. (12 references) (MLH)
