Gender, Poverty, Family Structure, and Investments in Children's Education in Kinshasa, Congo.
Shapiro, David; Tambashe, B. Oleko
Economics of Education Review, v20 n4 p359-75 Aug 2001
Examines school enrollment and educational attainment in Kinshasa, Congo, focusing on how poverty, household structure, gender, and economic well-being affect investments in children's education. Increased economic well-being translates into greater attainment for both females and males, but does not necessarily reduce gender differences in school outcomes. (Contains 37 references.) (MLH)
