主   题:【CHLR应用微观讲座】Mother education and child development: Evidence from the compulsory school reform in China

主讲人:刘 宏

摘   要:This paper investigates the causal impact of mother's schooling on a wide range of childhood outcomes and the underlying mechanisms, by exploiting the China compulsory education law enacted in 1986. Using data from China Family Panel Studies, we examine various outcomes of adolescent development, including school enrollment, cognitive ability, non-cognitive ability, mental health, self-reported health, and anthropometric outcomes. We find that mother's education not only has a significant causal effect on children's school enrollment and math test score, but also improves children's non-cognitive outcomes such as internal locus of control, mental health, and nutritional status. We also find that mother's education leads to substantial socioeconomic benefits for their children as well as an improvement in family stress and relations, which we interpret as two potential mechanisms behind our findings.
