Within-the-family education and its impact on equality

  • Katarina Nordblom

    (Uppsala University)

This is a theoretical study of human-capital formation, where parental, as well as public investments are essential. Policy influence rich and poor parents differently when they make educational decisions. Rich parents allocate resources efficiently between physical bequests and educational investments, while poor parents only afford investments in children's human capital. Therefore educational equality between rich and poor children is not necessarily promoted by further investments in public schooling. However, a simple PAYGO-system could yield efficient allocation also for poor children.
