The Determinants of Private Tutoring Participation and Attendant Expenditures in Korea
Jung, Jin Hwa; Lee, Kyung Hee
Asia Pacific Education Review, v11 n2 p159-168 Jun 2010
With the growing worldwide prevalence of private tutoring, the causes and effects of private tutoring have been drawing increasing attention both academically and policy wise. This study intends to draw policy implications by investigating the determinants of private tutoring participation of school-aged children and expenditures per child for such private tutoring. The logistic regression (for participation), OLS, and F.E. panel models (for expenditures) were adopted for the analysis, using the Korean panel data. The empirical findings indicate that private tutoring for children--both in terms of participation and expenditures--has a positive correlation with the mother's educational attainment (preference effect), a negative correlation with the mother's employment status (time constraint effect), and a positive correlation with the household income (income effect). (Contains 4 tables, 2 figures, and 2 footnotes.)
