Mora, Marie T.
Economics of Education Review, v16 n4 p407-18 Oct 1997
Examines the influence of certain opportunity costs (school attendance, educational quality attributes, and household economic status) on the educational demand of Mexican-Americans, African-Americans, and non-Hispanic whites using 1988-89 National Education Longitudinal Study data. Basic results suggest that a school's attendance rate is sensitive to educational quality and student characteristics. Policy recommendations are discussed. (31 references) (MLH)
