Primary Schooling in Zambia Squeezed at Community and Household Level
AbstractA part of the current economic reform program in Zambia, is to increase standard, efficiency and equity in the primary school sector. This paper studies primary school attendance. A logistic regression analysis is used to show that community level and household level variables affect the likelihood of attending primary school for children between seven and thirteen years of age. A number of community level variables have a significant effect and are also interesting from a policy point of view. Household level variables have even stronger effects. A policy conclusion: There is a need to introduce a widespread scholarship program to ensure equity and efficiency. A scientific conclusion: A multilevel analysis contributes additional insights. A final policy conclusion: There is a need to introduce a widespread scholarship program to ensure equity and efficiency. A final scientific conclusion: A a dedicated multilevel analysis might yield additional insights.
