Abstract

This study investigates several determinants of children’s education in Vietnam. It finds an important role of living with both parents on. More specifically, children in households without either parent, due to divorce or death of parents, have lower enrollment rates than other children. Importantly, the effect on children of divorce of parents is even higher than the effect of parental death. Children with parents who migrate also have lower enrollment rates compared to children living in households where parents do not migrate. The study also shows correlation between inter-ethnic marriage and children's education. Children in families in which one Kinh parent and one from an ethnic minority group, as well as children of parents from two different ethnic minorities, have higher school attendance rates than children with parents from the same ethnic minority group.
