Ability and intrahousehold allocation in Gansu province, China.

Abstract

This paper analyzes the strategies employed by households in rural China to allo- cate educational expenditure to children of diferent endowment, examining whether parents use educational funding to reinforce or compensate for variation in endowment. Employing climatic shocks as an instrument for children's endowment yields results indicating that parental expenditure is preferentially directed to children of lower endowment.
