A Demand of education as a strategic demand in a context of job rationing and job scarcity: the analysis of further education after post-secondary vocational education in France
In a context of job rationing and job scarcity and of an increasing number of graduates, demand of education should be analysed as more dependent on a strategic sequential decision than a simple synoptic decision of individual allocation of resources as considered in the standard human capital theory. Further education after post-secondary vocational education in France illustrates such a behaviour. How to explain those students further education demand? What are the main factors determining their choice and their incentives to continue further studies? The aim of this paper is to analyse, in the 1990ís context of high and persistent unemployment in France, the determinants of further education.
