Short-Run Distributional Effects of Public Education Transfers to Tertiary Education Students in Seven European Countries
Callan, Tim; Smeeding, Tim; Tsakloglou, Panos
Education Economics, v16 n3 p275-288 Sep 2008
Direct provision of public services can alter the balance of resources across income groups. We focus on the issues arising when taking account of the impact of publicly provided education services across the income distribution. We combine OECD information on spending per student in particular levels of the education system with micro data from nationwide income surveys to track the allocation of resources. We pay particular attention to the role of third-level education, and provide comparable results for seven European countries (Belgium, Germany, Greece, Italy, Ireland, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom). (Contains 11 tables and 8 notes.)
