Migration, Remittances and Educational Outcomes: The Case of Haiti
Bredl, Sebastian
International Journal of Educational Development, v31 n2 p162-168 Mar 2011
This paper empirically investigates how migration and the receipt of remittances affect educational outcomes in Haiti. Based on a theoretical approach it tries to disentangle the effects of both phenomena that have mostly been jointly modeled in previous literature. The results suggest that remittances play an important role for poor households in alleviating budget constraints. Household wealth, captured via an asset index, is found to have a significant impact on education as well, supporting the idea that budget constraints play a crucial role in schooling decisions in Haiti. (Contains 5 tables.)
