报告主题：Gender Difference in Parental Investment in Education
主 讲 人：蒋旭（中国人民大学）
报告摘要：This study provides robust evidence of a reversed gender disparity in parental investment in children's education. Our analysis reveals that parents allocate a relatively greater amount of financial resources to support their daughters' education compared to sons. This can be explained by an expectation-adjustment process. Boys consistently demonstrate lower academic performance, even in traditionally male-dominated subjects such as mathematics, leading to a widening gender gap in parental expectation of test scores. Consequently, parents tend to allocate relatively fewer educational resources towards their sons compared to the daughters.
