Intergenerational mobility of education in Vietnam: Evidence from the Vietnam War

Khoa Vu and Maria C. Lo Bue

No wp-2019-67, WIDER Working Paper Series from World Institute for Development Economic Research (UNU-WIDER)

Abstract: Vietnam's education system has recently attracted international attention for exceptional learning outcomes and success in improving schooling outcomes over a short period, despite being a lower-middle-income country. One potential explanation is the substantial increase in parental schooling after the Vietnam War ended in 1975, which might have led to better educational outcomes for the next generation. This study examines the causal effect of parental schooling on children's educational attainment in Vietnam.
