Education and Income Inequality in Turkey: Does Schooling Matter?
Anil Duman, Central European University, Budapest, Hungary
The paper examines the link between educational variables and income inequality in Turkey. First, I evaluate the impact of educational level, then I move on to assess educational inequality and finally I consider educational spending by public and private sectors. I argue that due to the limited public spending on primary and secondary education and growing private spending, the spread between socio-economic groups will not be decreased significantly.
Keywords: inequality of income, education, public spending
