Motives for School Evasion - Neri, Marcelo Cortes

Sobre o paper: 

ABSTRACT

We propose to study the causes of evasion along three basic lines, namely: the myopia or ignorance of public policy managers who restrict the supply of educational services; the intrinsic lack of interest of parents and students about the supply of education, be it for its perceived low quality or their ignorance and myopia about education’s potential impacts. A third line is the income or credit market restrictions that stop people from enjoying the high returns of education in the long term.

Highlights:
Amongst the reasons why people are not in school, 85,6% are related to the lack of demand against 12,9% of problems with the supply of education.
The lack of intrinsic interest represents 50,5% of evasion. The need to increase income represents 35,1% of the evasion.
School evasion is worse when the aggregate work opportunity is combined with individual income deprivation.
