- Sharma, Sabal and Levinson, D. (2019) Travel Cost and Dropout from Secondary Schools in Nepal. Transportation Research part A. 130, 385-397 [doi] [free until Nov 22, 2019]
The study relates the association between travel time to the lower secondary and secondary public schools of Nepal and the dropout grade before leaving secondary school. Using an ordered logit model we find that as the travel time to the school increases, students are more likely to dropout from the school system in earlier grades. The results from this study will be useful to policymakers, especially from developing countries, as it places transport in the context of education.
