Study on Provincial Compulsory Education Financial Equity Based on School-Level Data from One Province
Gang, Cheng
Chinese Education and Society, v42 n5 p26-46 Sep-Oct 2009
By applying the multivariable method to elementary school data in one western province, this study shows that per-student budgetary nonpersonnel expenditure in the province is the most unequal index in terms of horizontal equity. In terms of vertical equity, the equity effect of the "poor county" designation by the central or provincial governments is more important than whether the county is located in a rural area. Finally, per capita fiscal income has a significant and positive influence on per-student budgetary nonpersonnel expenditure, and this correlation, which has become stronger over time, violates the principle of fiscal neutrality.
