Family Resources, Family Size, and Access to Financing for College Education
Robert Pollak () and
Journal of Political Economy, 1989, vol. 97, issue 2, 398-419
Unequal access to financing for education may be an important source of educational differences. The authors develop a model relating sib schooling and earnings similarities to sibship, size with and without equal access, and estimate it for the education of veterans, for whom the GI Bill assured equal access, and for their children, who had no such government assistance. They find an inverse relationship between sibship size and sib schooling and earnings similarities for the children, but not for the veterans. They conclude that, in the absence of equal access policies, unequal access is an important source of educational differences. Copyright 1989 by University of Chicago Press.
