Children's Advancement Through School in Brazil: The Role of Transitory Shocks to Household Income

Suzanne Duryea

No 4124, Research Department Publications from Inter-American Development Bank, Research Department

Abstract: This paper investigates the effects of short-run economic shocks on children`s progress through school in urban Brazil using a unique panel data set. The severe problem of grade repetition in Brazil contributes to overall low education levels. Of children ages 10-15 who are enrolled in school, only 69 percent advance on average to the next grade. This paper investigates whether children`s effort on schoolwork is diminished when parents experience a transitory shock to income.
