Abstract

This study examines the Japanese government’s financial support program that began providing educational cost relief to high school students in 2010. The program has since been providing partial support for private high school tuition, depending on household income. Our results indicate that this financial support program overall has an insignificant impact on education-related expenditures, while we have some marginal evidence of educational cost reduction depending on the specifications.
