Poverty and Basic Education in Rural China: Villages, Households, and Girls' and Boys' Enrollment.
Hannum, Emily
Comparative Education Review, v47 n2 p141-59 May 2003
Against a backdrop of educational decentralization and market transition, China demonstrates how local community resources condition educational inequality. Analysis of 1992 national survey data on 7,550 villages and nearly 78,000 rural children aged 12-14 revealed that household income, village income, and village provision of junior high schools had distinct net impacts on children's enrollment probabilities, with larger effects on girls than boys.
