"A Theory of Compulsory Public Schooling"
AbstractWe consider two types of consumers, educated and uneducated, with each preferring a different variety of goods. A decisive set of persons can impose compulsory education on all. We find conditions under which educated persons will want to impose compulsory education, and conditions under which uneducated persons would oppose compulsory education even if it was free.
