Schooling, Basic Skills and Economic Outcomes.
Ishikawa, Mamoru; Ryan, Daniel
Economics of Education Review, v21 n3 p231-43 Jun 2002
Uses data from the National Adult Literacy Survey to examine the relationship between schooling and earnings. Basic skills are partitioned between those acquired through schooling and those acquired elsewhere. Finds that, for the most part, it is the substance of learning in school--the accumulated human capital--that counts, not the credential. (Contains 20 references.) (Author/PKP)
