A Theoretical Assessment of Regional Development Effects on the Demand for General Education
Iwahashi, Roki
Economics of Education Review, v26 n3 p387-394 Jun 2007
This study addresses a prospective aspect of general education: through general education, people obtain information about returns to their future specific education, thereby enabling them to choose fields in which they excel. According to that property of education, this paper presents a theoretical framework as a basis for understanding effects of regional development on the demand for general education. Results suggest that the demand for general education depends on the variety of specific skills in the regional labor market.
