Education, Work, and Pay in East Africa
This important book looks at the effects of educational expansion, particularly expansion of secondary education, on the labor market in developing countries. Hazlewood presents, analyzes, and compares data derived from surveys of employees in Nairobi and Dar es Salaam on such topics as the relationship between education, wages, occupation, and the phenomenon of "filtering down"; training provided by employers; relations between employees' education and that of their parents and children; assortative mating; intergenerational occupational mobility; and the role of education in rural-urban links.
