Education and Poverty in Rural China.
Brown, Philip H.; Park, Albert
Economics of Education Review, v21 n6 p523-41 Dec 2002
Analyzes household and school survey data from poor counties in six Chinese provinces to examine the effects of poverty, intra-household decision-making, and school quality on educational investments and learning outcomes. Finds, for example, that being poor and credit-constrained does not significantly affect learning in school (as measured by test scores and being held back). (Contains 34 references.) (Authors/PKP)
