Cost shifting in education : implications for government, the community sector and low income families

by Bond, Sharon | Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2009Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: This report commissioned by the Equity in Education Alliance seeks to quantify in dollars the extent to which the Victorian community service organisations, including emergency relief providers, assist disadvantaged families to meet school education expenses. This costs data supports the argument that the cost of education has been shifted from the state to the individual, and that these costs are then shifted a second time, when disadvantaged families seek help from the community sector. In the Alliance?s view, failure to address educational inequity and ensure that cost is not a barrier to participation shows a lack of regard for human dignity, impedes the future economic and social inclusion of children and threatens the success of the national productivity agenda.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Designing a life-course savings account : how to help low-to-middle income families save more /

by Dolphin, Tony | Institute for Public Policy Research.

Publisher: London, U.K. Institute for Public Policy Research 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: April 2011 Bibliography pp. 37-38 Appendices pp. 39-46Summary: This paper reports the results of research designed to identify the features of a savings account that would appeal particularly to low-to-middle income families while also being viable for financial service providers. Families in the UK, especially low-to-middle income families - the median family income in 2008/09 was around 26,000 - find it hard to save, other than for short-term events such as Christmas and family birthdays. Among the reasons they give is a belief that the right savings vehicle does not exist for them. Based on workshops with would-be service users and providers, this report identifies the key features of an attractive and feasible 'life-course savings account' and proposes two specific savings products: a Lifetime Bonus Savings Account, aimed at encouraging saving, particularly to help families cope with emergencies, and a Long-term Investment Account, designed to replace the existing cash ISA scheme for savers at a higher level. These kinds of savings products balance rewards for savers against the cost to the public purse.Availability: (1)

Do poor children become poor adults? : lessons from a cross country comparison of generational earnings mobility. /

by Corak, Miles | Institute for the Study of Labor.

Publisher: Germany Institute for the Study of Labor 2006Description: PDF.Summary: A cross country comparison of generational earnings mobility is offered, and the reasons for the degree to which the long run labour market success of children is related to that of their parents is examined. The rich countries differ significantly in the extent to which parental economic status is related to the labour market success of children in adulthood. The strength of these associations should not be interpreted as offering a target or menu for the conduct of policy. A framework for understanding the underlying causal process as well as the conception of equality of opportunity is reviewed as a guide for public policy.Availability: No items available

Does part time employment help or hinder lone mothers' movements into full time employment? /

by Fok, Yin King | University of Melbourne. Melbourne Institute of Applied conomic and Social Research | Jeon, Sung-Hee | Wilkins, Roger.

Publisher: Parkville, Vic. Melbourne Institute of Applied Economic and Social Research 2009Description: PDF.Other title: Melbourne Institute Working Paper ; no. 25/09.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: A significant demographic trend in recent decades in Australia has been the growth in lone parent families as a proportion of all families, associated with which has been growth in welfare dependency. This has led to considerable policy focus on increasing lone parent participation in employment. A key issue that has arisen for the Government in pursuing this policy goal is whether, in the context of a welfare system that accommodates the combining of part-time employment with welfare receipt, part-time employment helps or hinders a progression to full-time employment, and whether and how this depends on characteristics such as the number and ages of dependent children. In this study, we investigate this issue using Australian panel data on female lone parents over the period 2001 to 2007. We estimate dynamic random effects multinomial logit models of three labour force states ? not employed, employed part-time, and employed full-time ? allowing investigation of whether part-time work represents a stepping stone to full-time employment. Evidence in support of the stepping stone hypothesis is found. Part-time employment increases the probability of full-time employment in the next year by approximately six percentage points. No (statistically significant) evidence is found that this stepping stone function varies by number of children or age of the youngest child.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
