Abstract

A model is provided for the optimal allocation by parents of a child’s time between schooling and labor given access to publicly funded schooling programs. If the budget of the Government is constrained, and if policy makers cannot differentiate program benefits among the poor, they will fund programs that will help the poor, but whose value may not be high enough for take-up by the poorest if conditionalities are imposed for receiving the program’s benefits.// Presentamos un modelo en el que los padres deciden el uso óptimo del tiempo de los niños entre ir a la escuela o trabajar, dado que existen programas financiados por el gobierno para aumentar la escolaridad. Aun si el presupuesto del gobierno es restringido y no se puede distinguir el nivel de pobreza de cada familia, se puede beneficiar a los pobres. Sin embargo, si el programa no es lo suficientemente generoso y se impone condiciones para recibir el beneficio, los más pobres podrían decidir no participar en él.
