Determinants of School Attainment of Boys and Girls in Turkey
AbstractThis study investigates the determinants of school attainments of boys and girls in Turkey. Although high levels of enrollements have been achieved at the primary school level for both boys and girls in much of Turkey, substantial regional differences remain. In particular, in the Southeastern region, girls begin to drop out of school around the third grade. Only half of the primary school graduates register at the middle level. Thus, the purpose of this study is to examine the determinants of educational attainments at the primary, middle and high school levels.
