摘要

本文研究香港中學生畢業後的升學/就業抉擇,特別是其與家庭因素的關係。我們運用1986人口普查數據,以統計方法評估家庭收入、子女人數、父母親教育、階級背景等因素對學生教育途徑選擇所起之作用,並分析男女之間的差別。我們發現家庭財政資源較多、子女人數較少,及父母教育程度較高,皆有助子女依從主流的教育途徑升學。

Abstract

This paper examines the educational choice of Form 5 graduates in Hong Kong. We employ the 1986 by-census data to evaluate the effects of family variables, including household income, number of siblings, parents' educational attainment, and class background, on the choice of educational paths among students upon completion of their secondary education. It is found that the family plays an important role in the process.
