The Relative Effect of Family Characteristics and Financial Situation on Educational Achievement.
Chevalier, Arnaud; Lanot, Gauthier
Education Economics, v10 n2 p165-81 Aug 2002
Poorer families are financially constrained, or some characteristics of the family make the children less likely to participate in postcompulsory education. Proposes a methodology that separates financial and familial effects. Finds that while pupils from poorer families are less likely to invest in education, the family-characteristics effects dominate the financial-constraint effects. (Contains 28 references.)
